A shade net is a material used to reduce the intensity of sunlight or heat on crops, buildings and other things that need to be protected from sunlight. A lot of farmers have issues with the excessive heating natural sunlight can cause especially in Nigeria. Excessive sunlight can create heat which can be detrimental to the development and fruiting of some crops.

Some researchers have proven that plants only process 1-2% of the sunlight they receive. A shade net can reduce the intensity of this excessive sunlight and distribute the rays of the sunlight on the plants.

Shade nets are used by some smart farmers in Nigeria to significantly improve their yields and make them smile to the bank. Shade net farming is gaining ground in Nigeria now.

Hauwa (not real name) has been a tomato farmer for over 15 years. She hardly gets 2 tonnes per hectare in her tomato farm due to hey poor growing skills.

She contacted Veggie Grow Limited and we found out that her tomato plants’ often abort a lot of their flowers and fruits due to the high temperature in her location.

We advised her to construct a shade net with drip irrigation installed in it. She obliged our recommendation. After implementing our recommendation, Hauwa increased her tomato yield per hectare to 40 tonnes. Shade net, drip irrigation and fertigation played a huge role in this successful feat.
