1. Agrotextiles are fabrics (woven, unwoven or knitted) used in agriculture, horticulture, forestry and fishing. They can include fishnets, shades, mulch mats, thermal screens and crop covers. Common uses for agrotextiles are protecting livestock, maintaining soil humidity and temperature, eliminating the impact of pests and general shading.
2. Horticulture is the science or art of cultivating fruits, vegetables, flowers, or ornamental plants. Etymologically, "horticulture" can be broken down into two Latin words: hortus (garden) and cultus (tilling).
3. abric composed of at least two sets of yarns -- one warp (longitudinal) and one filling (crosswise) -- laced at right angles to each other
4. A fabric not woven or knitted from thread or yarn. Non-woven fabrics, include fake leather and suede, felt, various interfacings.
5. fabric which is knitted using plain and pearl stitches and is therefore stretchy
6. A protected structure mainly made up of a frame of either Bamboo, PVC pipes or metallic frame with Jute Cloth/UV Stabilised Plastic Film, Plastic Wires. This chamber may have temperature and humidity control systems for customized growth of plants.
7. Windshields are nets made up of PP monofilament or polyethylene tape yarns which are used in farming to protect fruit plantations from wind and to prevent damage to plants. It also prevents plants being cooled by the wind.
8. Harvesting nets are nets made up of PP monofilament or polyethylene tape yarns which are used to prevent the natural falling harvesting, hand harvesting or mechanised harvesting.
9. Root ball nets are made up of nylon / polyester and spandex monofilament yarns which are used for protection of young plants so that root system is not damaged when they are dug up, transported or replanted.
10. The insect nets are nylon fine woven screens used to protect plants from insect attack
11. Mulch mats are used to suppress weed growth in horticulture applications. It covers the soil, blocking of light and preventing the competitive wheat growth around seed links.Material such as leaves, hay, straw, or the like, spread over the surface of the ground to protect the roots of newly planted shrubs or trees, of tender plants, etc., from the sun or from the cold.
12. It is a spun bonded PP product which is used, in a similar fashion to mulch, to suppress weeds and conserve water in crop production and landscaping. Certain plastic mulches also act as a barrier to keep methyl bromide, both a powerful fumigant and ozone depleter, in the soil. Crops grow through slits or holes in thin plastic sheeting.
13. Turf protection nets are made up of polyethylene tape yarns that are put over the grassy areas on riverbanks; dykes etc., so that lumps of earth are not removed while animals are grazing them. This will help in minimizing soil erosion loss and improve conservation.
14. Monofil nets are knitted nylon nets used for windbreak fences and shading screens.
15. Tape nets are knitted polypropylene nets applicable for reducing sunlight intensity and to provide support to the fruit while ripening and also for animal protection.
16. Cherry covers are PP nets used for protection of cherry crop throughout the seasonfrom frost, rain, hail and wind.
