Agrotex, like all nonwovens for plant protection, has a loose structure. It looks like non-woven. May be white and black.
Agrofibre "Agrotex" is made of polypropylene. Environmentally friendly, because it does not emit any harmful substances. Light-stabilizing additives make agrofiber insensitive to the action of sunlight and prolong its service life.

The main thing - do not keep a long time in a very tense state. After all, all non-woven materials are destroyed in this state. It is necessary to lay agrofibre agrofibre easily.

Types of agrofibre "Agrotex"
It is white and black. White is used to shelter green plants and ensure their functioning and growth.
Black "Agrotex" - covering material that inhibits growth, so it is used to control weeds.
White agrofibre may be of different thickness.
"Agrotex 17" is a very light material. Its density is only 17 g / m 2. Use in the spring for covering beds or greenhouses from frost not lower than 2 C. On the beds, the planted seedlings are covered with cloth and the edges are fixed without stretching the films. The seedling is made higher and pulls the canvas. You can water it without taking shelter. After all, Agrotex is a covering material that passes moisture well. It is evenly distributed between the plants. When the plants grow, the canvas is released, loosening the tension, and fixed again. And so it goes on until the blowjob threat of spring frosts. When using "Agrotex" in the greenhouse, energy is saved for heating.
As a result of the use of Agrotex, strawberries and tomatoes ripen three or even four weeks earlier. Can cover bushes. So, the grapes of late varieties ripen before the onset of frost, if it is closer to fall to cover the "Agrotex".
Agrotex 30, as well as Agrotex 42, is used to protect plants from medium frost (6-8 degrees). It is more durable, but also quite light. Can be used to shelter greenhouses. The principle of operation is the same as that of brand 17.
"Agrotex 60" has a density of 60 g / m 2. Very durable. Saves from frost at 9 degrees. You can apply all year round to shelter greenhouses, protect ornamental shrubs. It is also quite light. Still used with the frame, especially for delicate young plants. The sharp parts of the frame cover from contact with the agrofiber so that it does not explode. Cover the frame, the edges are fixed so that the wind could not lift them. If it rains for a long time, the greenhouse is covered with foil. This should be done in order to prevent excess water from accumulating near the plants. After all, outside of it, moisture evaporates faster under the influence of the sun and wind.
If severe frosts are expected, then the seedlings inside the greenhouse are covered with “Agrotex 17”.
Black agrofibre "Agrotex" release only dense.
Under it, the soil warms, moisture under the plants is preserved. In addition, it successfully fights weeds, because without the action of sunlight, they stop vegetation. Having planted the plants, cover the area with black agrofibre, cut holes in the shape of a cross so that the plant could freely pass through it outside. The canvas is laid on the ground. Lightly fix the edges. It is convenient to do with strawberries. If you want to mulch the area with annual plants, it is better to first lay the fiber with holes, and then plant seedlings in them. This will save tender leaves from damage. And from drying and weeds protects Agrotex.
Prices for fiber "Agrotex" depend on the density and area of the canvas. Thus, 32 m 2 mark 60 can be bought for 380 rubles. "Agrotex 42" of the same area has a price of 277 rubles. A roll with dimensions of 1.6 x 200 costs 2332 rubles.
Use in summer
"Agrotex" - covering material that can not be removed until the time when it comes time to harvest. But this does not apply to plants pollinated by bees and other insects. The fruits of pepper, tomatoes under the canvas will not be sintered in the sun, because under it creates a special tropical microclimate.
If the agrofibre has fulfilled its function, it is removed from the beds or greenhouses, shake off the ground. Rinsed and dried, rolled up and hidden until next spring. The storage location should be dark, dry and away from heat sources and mouse habitats. Spring to wait not so long, and then "Agrotex" again useful to you.
There is a time for everything, but so far only January is on the calendar and there is an opportunity to prepare for the beginning of the season - let's talk now about how to plant early seedlings. How to get a harvest earlier and a half to two months ahead of time?
Eggplants, like peppers, have rather large fruits that, under the weight of their own weight, can cause damage to the plant. Eggplant shoots and leaves are fragile and care must be taken when taking care of the plant, caring for the plant and harvesting. We recommend using Agrotex Gardens for garters, which have several advantages over other materials for garters (ropes, wires, polyethylene)
Cucumber - the most common vegetable in the garden. It is difficult to find at least one private plot on which there would be no beds of cucumbers. The fruits of cucumber sederzhat insulin analogue, iodine and potassium. Cucumber is more than 90% water and contains beneficial vitamins and trace elements. The water contained in the cucumber, perfectly removes toxins and a beneficial effect on the human body. It is a pity such a useful vegetable litter with growth enhancers, herbicides and other chemicals.
The most common and affordable method is growing tomatoes in greenhouses with replaceable covering material. Those. the frame is a stationary frame construction, and the shelter is worn only for the period of the agricultural season. It is economical, mobile and reliable.
The use of Agrotex in the cultivation of tomatoes is advisable for the following purposes:
- protection of landings from frost, wind, dew (Agrotex 42.60 g / m2 white on frames / greenhouses),
- mulching / protection against weeds (Agroteks 60 g / m2 black).
"Agrotex" is a special type of nonwoven covering material that can be used for growing plants throughout the year. The product has a loose structure, which looks like flizelin. It is an excellent alternative to other varieties of covering cloths used in gardening.
The use of agrofibre extensive. It can be used for the following purposes:
- seed germination on seedlings,
- protection of crops from spring frosts,
- covered ground mulching
- preservation of moisture in the soil with the possibility of watering without removing the film,
- plant protection against weeds, birds and pests.
The canvas is suitable for finishing frame greenhouses and year-round greenhouses. When creating such structures, it is necessary to ensure that the material in the tensioned position is not in contact with sharp objects (brackets, nails, etc.). Otherwise, the risk of breaks increases.
Video "Types of covering material" Agrotex "and their use"
From this video, you will learn why it is recommended to cover the plants for the winter with the Agrotex material.
Most agricultural enthusiasts have been using agrotextiles for a long time in their gardens. They share their feedback and experiences.
I was advised to use my mother's agrotextiles. She is an experienced gardener and considers such material to be very effective in growing various crops. I bought a black strawberry cloth and covered the garden bed. A great way to get a clean and bountiful harvest of berries. There were no weeds, there was no need for weeding while the agrofabric lay.
I recommend all summer residents and gardeners to buy and use black agrofibre. This is a good helper, because you do not need to sit constantly on the beds and remove weeds. The material copes with them himself. The soil remains hydrated, because agrofabric is perfectly permeable to moisture.
I am an adherent of a healthy diet, therefore I eat vegetables and fruits in large quantities. I grow a lot of different crops on my plot. In early spring, I sowed seeds of early varieties under white agrofibre. The first radish ripened right under the covering material by the end of May. Considering our cold climate, the harvest was very early.
