Frequently Asked Questions
Is it worth the investment?
For high value fruit crops the answer is simple: Yes. It usually only takes one hailstorm to make the investment worthwhile. Even without storms the added environmental control increases quality and yield and most examples give a return on investment in 3 to 5 years. The best way to figure out the maths is to talk to contact G2
What is the Netting Infrastructure Grant?
The Netting Infrastructure Grant provides up to 50% funding for eligible projects up to a maximum of $300 000.
Should I build before or after planting?
Installing before planning helps plants achieve higher yields faster. Improved growing conditions means higher growth rates in the first years. For many tree crops the time to achieve a good yield is reduced by at least a year.
What Type of Net do I need?
Different Nets suit different purposes. Tighter weave nets will exclude small pests and provide more shade. Black net will also provide more shade than white net but reflects less usable light for the crop.
To exclude birds : Generally 20mm quad net for the roof and bird netting for the walls. A white roof with black walls provides good performance whilst reducing visual impact from the sides.
For Hail : 20mm Quad is sufficient to exclude large hail. Some crops are prone to damage from even small hail, and therefore 10 – 16mm quad may be better. The desire to exclude small hail must also be balanced with the shade requirement of the crop.
For Insects: 20mm quad roof net combined with finer 8mm quad wall nets will exclude the vast majority of bees and larger insects. Fine walls are important as bees generally travel horizontal to the ground at low heights. Although it is possible for bees to pass through a 20mm quad roof net this rarely happens in practice. Finer roof nets are of course more resistant to ingress but in our experience there is not a huge difference in practice.
