FENCING & SHADING >> NURSERY SHADING
Germinating seed and recently transplanted seedlings need protection from hot sun, heavy rain and hard frost. Therefore some method of shading beds in nurseries is essential. Shading reduces the temperature of the soil and the amount of water lost by seedlings. However if seedlings are left under shade all the time they grow too tall, too weak and yellow. It is important, therefore, only to shade seedlings when shade is needed. Shades are also used to protect against frost, rain and sun. To protect against frost ‘shades’ must be put up a few centimetres above the tops of the seedlings during the night when the frosts are likely. They should be taken off during the day time.shade material comes in multiple shade densities and can be used for applications such as greenhouses, canopies, farm stands and more. Shade fabric helps protects plants and people from direct sunlight and offers superior ventilation, improves light diffusion, reflects summer heat and keeps greenhouses cooler.
