Agro-woven fab­ric is a spe­cial mate­r­i­al that is used in hor­ti­cul­ture to pro­tect plants from harm­ful exter­nal influ­ences or pests. It is most often made of polypropy­lene or poly­ester, which is char­ac­terised by its high strength and resis­tance to tear­ing.

Agro-tex­tile through its prop­er­ties has many uses in hor­ti­cul­ture, includ­ing:

  1. Pro­tec­tion — Agrofiber pro­vides pro­tec­tion against frost, wind, hail, as well as pests and weeds.
  2. Mois­ture con­trol — the agro-tex­tile keeps the right lev­el of mois­ture around the plants, which is par­tic­u­lar­ly impor­tant when grow­ing in areas where there is low humid­i­ty.
  3. Tem­per­a­ture con­trol — the agro-fleece main­tains the right tem­per­a­ture around the plants, pro­tect­ing them from get­ting too hot in hot weath­er.
  4. UV pro­tec­tion — the agro-tex­tile pro­vides pro­tec­tion against UV radi­a­tion, which can cause dam­age to plants.
  5. Facil­i­tat­ing plant growth — the agro-tex­tile pre­vents soil ero­sion, which facil­i­tates plant growth.

Fixing the agro-textile to the ground

Use of agro fleece in hor­ti­cul­ture is a fair­ly com­mon prac­tice. With what can it be effec­tive­ly fixed to the ground? There are var­i­ous meth­ods. One is to choose and use G‑PIN 16/20 anchors. These are plas­tic, point­ed pegs (16 or 20 cm) that are dri­ven into the agro-tex­tile spread on the ground using a rub­ber mal­let or by hand. Detailed instruc­tions can be found here: instruc­tions for assem­bling the agro-tex­tile.

Advan­tages of using G‑PIN 16/20 fix­ing anchors:

  1. Effi­cien­cy — G‑PIN 16/20 anchors pro­vide a per­ma­nent fix­ing and thus a long-last­ing use of agro fleece. Thanks to the side tabs, the mate­r­i­al is held in place and does not move.
  2. Easy to use — the anchors are easy to use and do not require spe­cial tools. The wide head means com­fort and safe­ty dur­ing instal­la­tion.
  3. Time-sav­ing — thanks to the anchors, the instal­la­tion of the agro-tex­tile is quick­er and eas­i­er.
  4. Cost sav­ings — anchors are rel­a­tive­ly inex­pen­sive.
  5. Long-last­ing and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly — the anchors are made from recy­cled plas­tic. They are durable and resis­tant to exter­nal weath­er con­di­tions.

In sum­ma­ry, agro-tex­tile is an effec­tive solu­tion if you want to pro­tect your gar­den from adverse weath­er con­di­tions and pests. If well fixed, it will last for years, sav­ing you time and mon­ey.

White agro fleece — applications

White agro-tex­tile its use of is found pri­mar­i­ly in hor­ti­cul­ture and agri­cul­ture. It is a spe­cialised mate­r­i­al that has a pro­tec­tive func­tion for plants against adverse weath­er con­di­tions. In prac­tice use of agro fleece in white means not only a shield against frost or strong wind, but also a bar­ri­er against pests. Its airy struc­ture allows plants to exchange air freely, while pre­vent­ing the soil from dry­ing out too much. Won­der­ing, how to use agro-tex­tile? It’s sim­ple. First pre­pare the soil and then spread the mate­r­i­al where you want to pro­tect your plants. Lay it over the plants in such a way that they are com­plete­ly cov­ered. If you are deal­ing with large areas, it is advis­able to apply sev­er­al lay­ers of mate­r­i­al and the agro-tex­tile will become even more effec­tive. 

Black agro-textile — applications 

Black agro-tex­tile has use of Main­ly as a tool for weed con­trol in hor­ti­cul­ture. Its dark colour means that it blocks sun­light, thus pre­vent­ing weed seeds from ger­mi­nat­ing. By using it, you can there­fore sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce the occur­rence of weeds in your flowerbeds or home gar­den. Black agro-tex­tile finds use of also in pro­tect­ing against soil ero­sion and in con­serv­ing soil mois­ture. When it comes to agro-fibre in the con­text of advan­tages and dis­ad­van­tages, it is worth not­ing that one of its main advan­tages is its dura­bil­i­ty and ease of instal­la­tion. You can lay it direct­ly on the ground and then cov­er it with a lay­er of mulch. Among the dis­ad­van­tages, how­ev­er, is that over time it can become brit­tle and dis­in­te­grate when exposed to the ele­ments. Nev­er­the­less, the advan­tages of agrowo­ven fab­ric far out­weigh this, mak­ing it indis­pens­able for many gar­den­ing activ­i­ties. Anoth­er aspect is its abil­i­ty to retain water, keep­ing plants bet­ter hydrat­ed. Black agro-tex­tile has use of in many areas of hor­ti­cul­ture. It guar­an­tees effec­tive pro­tec­tion against weeds and helps to con­serve soil mois­ture. It is there­fore worth con­sid­er­ing using it in your gar­den.

Agro fleece — how often to use?

Many gar­den­ers ask them­selves this ques­tion when aim­ing to opti­mal­ly pro­tect their crops. Fre­quen­cy uses of agro fleece depends on your expec­ta­tions. If it is meant to pro­tect plants from frost, it is best to lay it in autumn and leave it until spring, while ensur­ing its sta­bil­i­ty dur­ing stronger winds. If the pur­pose of the fleece is to pre­vent weeds from sprout­ing, it is advis­able to lay it at the begin­ning of the grow­ing sea­son. When pro­tect­ing against pests or exces­sive sun­light, use it at peak times. It is impor­tant to check the con­di­tion of the agro-tex­tile reg­u­lar­ly and replace it if dam­aged. Remem­ber that flex­i­bil­i­ty in its appli­ca­tion is the key to suc­cess and healthy plants.
