Protected cropping solutions have gradually become more prevalent in the horticultural industry as growers search for increased yields, while navigating changing climatic conditions.
Implementation of protected cropping solutions with the latest design of Poly, Enviro & high-sided Tunnels and Tabletop and trellis systems has facilitated longer harvesting seasons, reduced disease pressure and chemical inputs, and better consistency and supply chain management. These benefits have enabled growers to mitigate crop loss and forecast with greater ease as they become non-reliant on weather working conditions.
