Stoneshade tarp best 40% Aluminet cloths are the best shade material for horticulture and agricultural use

Shade cloth has been closely associated with horticulture and agriculture since long. Horticulturists have carried out numerous studies to understand its effects on plants grown under the shade both in greenhouses and in the field. Shade cloth is available in many colors like black, red, violet brown and green with black being most popular and now you have Aluminet shade cloth a special type of knitted metalized fabric like the one you find at http://www.stoneshadetarp.com. Depending on the color of the fabric, shade cloths have different densities varying from 22% to 90%.
The specialty of black shade cloth
Black is the most prevalent color of shade cloth. It finds extensive applications especially for commercial use in horticulture and agriculture. Depending on the need, shade cloths can cover some specific plants inside a greenhouse or can even cover the entire greenhouse from the top.

The black cloth has excellent capabilities of reducing the effects of radiation that passes beneath the surface, and higher is the density, preferably 70% or more, better is the protection from radiation. However, such shade cloth might not be suitable for use in areas inhabited by humans and pets because the spectrum of light under the shade reduces the perception of depth and creates confusion when people spend a long time under it. However, it is good for many plants like blueberry and philodendron that shows higher vegetative growth.

Effect of color on grip and strength
People working under red shade cloth covering experience positive effects on their muscular strength that happens from the manner of dispersal of light under the shade. Red cloth shade is perfect in stimulating muscles and reducing strain and muscle fatigue for people working under the shade even though the radiation protection is not as good as black shade cloth. Moreover, red shade cloth can enhance mental perceptions.  Use of red cloth increases leaf mass in philodendron plants as well as other plants and herbs grown for their leaf production. Even cane plants grow stronger and produce more leaves when grown under red shade cloth.

Violet and blue shade cloth has better effects on Genovese basil and Thai basil plants than any other color of shade material. However, the effects are much less on Cilantro plants grown under red and blue shade covering. Since violet color has hues of blue and red colors, it reduces UV light which is good for the growth of some plants but not for some others. Violet shade is excellent for nut trees that experience high growth and enhanced quality. White shade cloth is suitable for use in areas where grip strength is important.

Aluminet – the new kid on the block
Aluminet is the brand name for a metalized shade cloth which is growing in popularity and is ideal for commercial use, especially for floral and vegetable production. In extremely hot climates, using colored shade cloths protect plants from heat but increase the humidity and temperature under the covering.

Aluminet is excellent is UV protection and creating a cool environment of moderate temperature which makes it the most preferred shade material today.
