This Bird & Hail Net will last 10 to 12 years and protects crops form birds, hail, wind, rain and will deter rabbits.
Our Bird & Hail net is made using the same mono filament as our 1.3mm Insect Net and it has the same reinforced edges with our unique 4 layer double stitched joins. This makes it a very strong light weight net that should last 10 to 12 years.

It is vital to plan ahead and order your nets at least 4 months before you need them on farm.
As the net does not stretch it needs to be laid loose over the crop leaving enough room for plant growth and securing the net at the edges. The wind can pass through freely through this net so it is very easy to lay and secure.
The best method of securing our Bird & Hail Nets is to use our blue Crop Cover Pegs one every 4 – 5m or our Heavy Duty sandbags. It is also possible to simply put a shovelful of soil on the edge of the net every 4 – 5m to secure it.
If the nets need to be removed regularly for weeding or hand harvesting then sandbags are the best option to secure them.
The nets can be rolled up quickly and easily with our Crop Cover Rolling Machines and unrolled onto the next crop for re-use. Most customers use these nets on several crops during the year as they can be used all year round significantly improving growth, yield and quality.
These nets act as an insurance policy giving protection from birds, hail, wind, rain and rabbits, allowing you to harvest more of what you plant.
Improved plant growth and increased uniformity of the finished product.
Can be re-used on other crops during the growing season allowing you to quickly recoup the cost of investment through improved quality and higher yields.
