What Color of Hail Net Suits You Best?

Hail nets are used as a means of protection against hail due to the specific climatic conditions and the damage hail can cause to leaves, trunks, and fruit.
However, the use of hail nets can reduce photosynthesis and can also affect the fruit during the growing season.

Three colors of hail nets are currently popular on the market,

  • Transparent Hail Net
  • White Hail Net
  • Black Hail Net

Black hail nets provide the best shade and in some hot areas with strong UV rays, black provides the best protection against sunburn on the fruit.

But for most light-loving fruits, which need more sunlight to color, black is not always suitable

For example apple growers,
the coloring of apples has a direct impact on the quality of their appearance and marketing.
