Protection for crop and greenhouse
Sudlac offers a series of reliable and effective products that protect crops against excessive sunlight to the maximum.
Protection against the sun
Sudlac products reduce direct sunlight radiation. This reduces the stress experienced by plants and prevents sunburn, which benefits yield and quality.
Temporary and removable shading agents
The Sudlac shading coatings are very user friendly and gradually wear off as the season progresses. These agents are applied to the greenhouse cover at the beginning of the season. The protection provided by the various coatings lasts 2, 4 or 6 months. Depending on the crop’s needs and the local weather conditions, the grower chooses a product that provides protection for a shorter or longer period. Removing the coating is not necessary as it wears off by itself.
In addition, a series of removable coatings is also available. These coatings are focused on maximum protection from the sunlight and offer stable protection through their entire service life. The grower determines when to remove the shading agent from the greenhouse cover using Topclear.
Applying a coating
The shading coatings from Sudlac can be applied and removed in various easy and responsible ways. In general, applications only take place during dry weather circumstances and when no precipitation is expected during the drying process. Coatings are applied to the greenhouse cover manually, mechanically, or by helicopter. Mix the coating with the desired amount of clean water prior to applying it to the greenhouse surface with the appropriate spray equipment.
