U.V. Treated Nonwoven fabric
U.V. treated non-woven fabric is a modern textile which is neither a film or a conventional textile. It is very light; generally 17 to 19 grams per square metre and therefore very economical. The Fabric has specialized UV absorbers/Stabilizers incorporated in it which ensures protection against the sun’s rays.
This fabric is to 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 5 degrees 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.
The fabric can be used very successfully by small and large farmers alike including for kitchen gardening. They are ideal when healthy seedlings and plants need protection from pests, insects and other environmental factors and where both quality and yield need to be improved.
AGRI Fabric are almost 80% transparent and with their uniform structure are uniformly water permeable. Plants covered with AGRI FABRIC can be fertilized afterwards if required.
Lettuce, Carrots, Tomatoes, Radishes, Cauliflower, Potatoes, Spinach, Leeks, etc.
Herbs, Shrubs and Flowers can also be very effectively protected from outside influences.
17-19 gsm UV Protected Fabrics for Agriculture and Crop Protection (Supplied in Rolls). At customer’s request it is possible to produce material with other kinds of additives. Spunbond Nonwoven material is non-toxic, at the temperature upto 150C it does not require any precautionary measures.
Application: 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 ; SUF-MK-60 – as a covering material for ground mulching and dealing with weeds.
Packing : Material is reeled in rolls (weight of roll is as per customer requirement), wound round paper tube and wrapped up in polyethylene film.
Period: This depends on the climate and is adaptable. Therefore earlier cropping becomes possible.
Outlay: Both manual or mechanical laying is possible. Generally they are laid just like a film. Since they are very light they must be handled with extra care. When laying sufficient margin over and above the normal field width must be allowed for growth and securing. They must be neither too loose or tight especially in the direction in which the wind is or may blow. The Fabric must be secured at the edge: a spade full of earth at regular intervals will generally be adequate. The Fabric is reusable for the next season if not damaged. The tension must be adjusted suitably depending upon the crop.
