Echoshade Specialises In The Construction Of Nethouses

The construction of nethouses on farms throughout South Africa has exploded since research found the major benefits it held! Benefits are so versatile, ranging from protection in hail conditions - like Mpumalanga experienced at the end of 2017 - as well as less water usage in extreme dry conditions - like Western Cape is currently facing.

Various articles in local magazines have discussed the positive impact Nethouses had on the performance of orchard and vineyards by infinitely advancing harvest percentages, amongst which Landbouweekblad and other Farming Magazines. Some benefits that need mentioning, include the protection of crops from extensive heat, temperature shocks and unwanted pollination as well as providing wind protection. With a fragile product such as blue berries, nets serve as a bird barrier.


It is a proven fact too that better sustainable photosynthesis occurred with the providing of a friendlier micro climate. Temperatures can now be reduced to up to 20% by the application of shadenets, thus improving skin texture and better colouring. Farmers in kiwi,citrus, berries and nuts have especially gained through optimal yields.
