Hail netting installation on the increase

17 July 2014

It is reported around 500ha of Gold3 orchards have now installed hail netting, with many more growers wanting to install it.

Growers see a number of advantages to protect their crops from wind and hail, including additional Psa-V protection. Good on-orchard shelter reduces physical damage (wounding) which creates Psa-V entry points.
