Use Agtec trellis support netting vertically to support your plants or horizontally in multiple layers. Plants are supported as they grow through the netting.

This extra strength netting is 25% thicker than standard Agtec 8g/sqm netting and 33% thicker than Tenax Hortonova making it ideal for areas that need extra strength.  It features reinforced top and bottom edges providing strength, edge visibility, and tension, and helps contain your support cable.

This netting improves air circulation, exposure to the sun and maximizes use of space. Reducing ground contact minimizes spoilage due to mold, bacteria and fungus and allows for easy harvesting. Manufactured with high quality UVA stabilized polypropylene, which is lightweight yet very robust, flexible, and resistant to bacteria, chemical agents and mold.

When installed horizontally in layers the net provides perfect stem support for fragile flowers and stems.

 

Vertical Uses


Agtec trellis netting can be used as a vertical support that is ideal for growing vegetables that need support like peas, tomatoes, pole beans and cucumbers because the plants attach easily to the net with no additional tying necessary. This technique provides greater exposure to air and sun and reduces ground contact which can result in rotten crops.  

 


Horizontal uses

When applied horizontally in layers our trellis netting is ideal to allow plants to grow up through the netting and be supported without the need to monitor growth and to continualy handle the plants and to tie to the supports. Great for flower beds and has suprisingly become immensely poplular with medical marijuana growers as the netting supports the plants as it grows up through the mesh.





Vertical Installation
 
To install Agtec trellis support netting vertically you would put support posts down your rows at approximately every 24' apart. Then you attach netting to the support posts using string or twine. Next snake a support cable such as monofilament support wire (available separately) or other strong cable or string through the netting at the top to support the netting. Then simply tie your plants to it as they grow. This netting is very versatile and you could be inventive such as making vertical cages.
 
Horizontal Installation
 
To install the Agtec trellis netting horizontally for larger crops such as tomatoes where you would need only 1 or 2 layers you could install the netting over a poly tunnel or a similar frame and simply allow the plant to grow through the netting. The netting is very versatile and there is many ways you can install this to support your plants such as putting over a hoop house or tunnel so that the crops beneath them grow through.
 
For smaller plants such as flowers you would need several layers that are close together. First start by putting 4  wood or metal posts in the ground. The first 2 should be placed in the ground the width of your netting, the second 2 should be placed 6 - 20' away. The height of the posts would depend on what you are growing.
 
Next screw or bolt wooden cross bars between the posts 1 and 2 and also between posts 3 and 4 at the different heights you are going to space your layers of  trellis support. This will depend on how tall your plants grow.
 
Next attach your netting to the cross bars by wrapping them around the cross bar and then tying string or zip ties around the netting and cross bar to hold in place. 
 
Next unroll the trellis support netting and attach to the cross bars between posts 3 and 4. You can continue the row by putting support posts and cross bars every 20' apart and make the layer as long as you want. Then do the next layer the same way.
 
You may be advised to strengthen the edges with monofilament or string to stop the edges from sagging.  Your plants should now be very well supported as they grow up through between the layers.
