The importance of IP netting in the vegetable seedling nursery Industry
With the rising cost of seeds and other input materials affecting the modern vegetable farmer it is of the utmost importance to ensure the nursery facility chosen to produce seedlings can offer not only optimal seed use, but optimal protection of vegetable seedlings during production.
Professional farmers around the world acknowledge the fact that starting vegetable production with a good quality seedling is the first step to a successful crop. As the old proven saying says: “Prevention is better than cure”
During times of high disease pressure brought on by insects such as white fly, Anti-Virus netting also known as IP (Insect Proof) netting is considered as one of the basic important features of a reliable vegetable seedling nursery.
Hishtil SA has over 3ha of high tech greenhouse facilities in Mooketsi, Limpopo. Hishtil SA green houses are all covered with well maintained, sealed IP netting as part of the global requirements of the Hishtil group to secure production of healthy high quality seedlings all year round.
