An excellent article has recently been posted online on Stock Journal (CLICK HERE for article), outlining the reasons a South Australian Citrus producer has installed 16 hectares of netting. Online version of article Stock Journal website Click Here

TO SUMMARISE:

  • increase premium quality fruit for Asian markets
  • reduction of wind-blemish on fruit
  • some shading benefits (reduction of sun-burn)

Weather stations are showing extra benefits too, reduced water use (via reduced evapotranspiration); or alternatively, larger yields on the same water input.
