Solagard Shade Cloth
Giving your plants the shade they need. Whatever kind of plant you have, we have the right shade for it.
Shade testing is based on uni-focus light source test using Spectra Professional IV digital exposure meter. Black absorbs light, as such, light and UV is blocked. This should be used where plants have a higher monetary value when they are taller. The plants reach out towards the light; they have less sprouting and longer internodes.
White refracts light, so plants have more light for photosynthesis. The scattered light is available to plants from within the shade structure. The plants exposure to UV is reduced. Light scattering within the shade structure starts at first available light; plants are able to grow for a longer period during the day. With UV protection and more light, the plant turns to growing. Shorter internodes and more budding is the result. Reduction of UV reduces plant water loss due to evaporation. Greater crop turn over because plants are able to grow for a longer period during the day. Morning light reduces exposure and development of frost on plants.
