Netting no longer “against something” but “for something”
Biorete 50 Mesh; peppers
If we move past the concept of nets as a form of passive defence (from hailstones, sunlight, insects, wind, birds), we can start considering nets no longer as an instrument against something or to defend something, but instead as an instrument “for” something - i.e. to create ideal growing conditions and a favourable microclimate and to reduce the use of pesticides.
Biorete 50 Mesh, Tomatoes
Plants and/or fruits become healthier and more vigorous – they no longer use their energy to “defend” themselves but instead to produce more buds and therefore more fruit with a better quality.
Fructus 5/4, Bananas
Therefore: a net for something, but not just any net.
Iride Uva, Cherry trees
A net that has been subjected to challenging lab tests, which has improved its characteristics to adapt to the needs of the crop it must defend. A net which has “studied” and taken part in numerous research projects.
Fructus 5/4, Table grapes
Tests, studies and research projects represent an added value, according to Arrigoni.
Biorete 50 Mesh, Salad
In Israel, this motto materialized with large netted protective structures that “cage” various crops (tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and salad with Biorete 50 Mesh; cherries, grapes, pears, citrus fruit and bananas with Fructus 5/4 or Iride Uva).
The effects? Climatic and biological control. The results: improved vigour and “healthiness”, increased fructification and, most of all, a better quality.
