The Significant Impact of Shade Net on Sweet Pepper Cultivation
Shade net has a significant impact on growth and productivity of various crops. One of these products is sweet pepper, which is widely consumed around the world. According to an experimental study, effect of shade net on cultivation of sweet pepper bushes was investigated. The experiments were carried out for two conditions: covered area with shade cloth and uncovered area. The results of this study indicated that sweet peppers cultivated under shading net were more in growth indices such as: plant height, length, net weight and moisture content. This higher efficiency is due to the favorable weather conditions and lower sunlight intensity under shade net and protection against solar radiation and sun burning. Additionally, it was mentioned that genetic characteristics also play a major role in qualitative indices of sweet pepper plant growth.
