High rate of sunlight can cause wilting and drying of leaves in some crops and flowers. Similarly, cold conditions can cause some fungal and leave drying conditions in certain crops.

Areas of heavy winds and high humidity require lower quality and strong high shade net filtration levels to curb wind effect on crops.
