Clearweave Cherry Covers

Growing cherries has proved an uncertain business because of their vulnerability to weather damage - especially during the blossom, stoning and fruit ripening periods.

The Hy-Tex Clearweave™ cherry cover system has been specifically designed to tackle these problems; offering protection throughout the season from frost, rain, hail and wind.

The covers were developed over an eight year period - in consultation with FAST and leading growers, as well as independent field trials undertaken, together with practical experience - and have demonstrated the significant benefits of using them.

Hy-Tex Cherry Cover System

The cover system comprises of a sliding canopy made from Hy-Tex's unique Clearweave™ fabric and specialised fixings. The purpose made cover is suspended above the trees, on a simple post and wire support structure, and can be quickly drawn (like a curtain) over the rows when shelter is required. The cover size provides the optimum balance between handling, wind resistance and protection.

Clearweave™ is a clear, breathable, material with low shade factor. The fabric is very tough, with a high degree of UV stabilisation (to protect against breakdown in sunlight), so will provide many years of use, and the suppleness makes it very easy to handle. Hy-Tex have also devised a patent fixing system to secure the cover to the wires. This technique is not only adaptable (with flexibility in positioning), but also quick and easy to attach.

Benefits

The unique properties of Clearweave™ mean the Hy-Tex system offers unrivalled performance. The cover creates a micro-climate (without hindering ventilation) which gives protection against adverse weather conditions - improving both quality and yields.

In addition, where several rows of trees are covered, side protection to adjacent rows is provided - so climate control is further improved.  Shelter from rain and hail protects against cracking, which means growers can now wait until fruit is fully ripe before harvesting (and even leave some for a later pick) - the gain in weight and sugar content is dramatic when fruit is left on the tree until optimum size.
