Covering and Protective matrials for agriculture

Use of Nanofibrous Materials in Agriculture


Advantages


Microclimate Control

Minimum packing density of nanofibers and a possibility of nanolayers’ formation of hydrophilic or hydrophobic polymers

  • use in various climate zones and for different sectors of agriculture.
  • materials are “breathing”
  • absence of an additional greenhouse effect
  • moisture retention with a use of hydrophobic polymers/support materials. Reduction of standard
    norms of watering
  • free moisture exchange with a use of hydrophilic polymers/support

Protection against pathogenic microorganisms

Insectofungitsides, embedded in the nanofibers, are controllably desorbed
  • longtime protection of crops from pests, fungi and bacteria
  • the material can be used in:
    -vegetable gardening (closed type)
    -open field vegetable production
    -vineyards
    -forestry
    -farms and agricultural holdings

Prolongation of the vegetation period

Materials with photoluminescent nanoadditives
  • increasing the intensity of the red and blue spectra
  • Accumulation of the solar energy during a day and its transformation into the lighting for optimum plant growth and development during a night
Protection from precipitation
Reinforcement of the material with special nets
  • torrential rains
  • hails and glazed rains
  • snowfalls
  • cold winds
