Garden Shade Nets: Ideal for Seedling Propagation

Garden Shade Nets

Propagation of seedlings is a critical process in crop production as seeds require garden shade nets for optimum conditions and a lot of care.

Seedlings are delicate and cannot tolerate stress due to premature root and leave development.

Role of Shade Nets

Shade nets protect crops from protection from strong sunlight intensity, winds and exposure to pests or diseases.

Moreover, they lower evaporation rates in the soil and making moisture available for plants.

Temperature regulation rates depend on the percentage of filtration of a particular garden net. The higher the rate of sunlight filtration, the less the temperature thus less water loss and vice versa.
