The use of agro-textiles improve color uniformity and prevent staining of fruits and vegetables. As per the data, yield increase was seen 60-90% by application of shade net. UV agro-textiles also enhance life for multiple use of the non-woven fabric.
Non Woven fabrics are made from polypropylene an economical and environment friendly polymer; by spinning the material into fine filaments and bonding them by heat without use of any binders. It is a modern textile which is neither a film nor a conventional textile. It is very light weight and therefore very economical.
Agriculture non woven fabric basically create a microclimate providing uniform ventilation there by encouraging early growth and development of the plant and/or crop with the valuable end result of both improvement in quality and yield. It Protects the plant from cold and frost upto approx. 5°C some circulating moisture is trapped by it and in the event of a frost this film freezes providing the plant with natural frost protection. It minimizes the dangers caused by hail, heavy rains and storms.
Agriculture non woven is used as a covering material for garden, protective material from agriculture vermin, heavy rain, hall rain, over heating. This material ensures optimal microclimate for growth of plants and reduces periods of maturing; it is also used as a covering material for greenhouse, gardenbeds and for protection from frost, covering material for ground mulching and dealing with weeds.
