Caption: Hectares of orchards in Provence are covered in protective netting which reduces losses from damage by insects (including grasshoppers), birds and hail, as well as diffusing the light, that can scorch the foliage. It can be used as a floating row crop cover, hoop netting or individual fruit tree cover. Made from high-density UV protected polyethylene it will be effective for many years of service. The edges are reinforced edges with button holes for tie down or hanging them on wires between posts. Provence, France.
