IRIDIUM ® is a range of anti-hail nets that act at various levels on the protection and development of plants and productions, by changing the quantity and quality of available light, while protecting against insects and weather.

APPLICATIONS

IRIDIUM® is suitable to protect all plants such as kiwi fruit, plum, peach, pear, apple, apricot, grape, pomegranate, lotus (khaki), citrus fruits (lemons, clementines, bergamot), but more generally is indicated in all the situations in which you require an effective anti-hail protection associated with high physiological performance of the plant.

ADVANTAGES OF IRIDIUM ®

  • Active crop protection from adverse weather conditions (hail, wind, frost read by irradiation)
  • Mechanical defense against insect.
  • Best development of plants..
  • Best coloring of the fruit and the best size..
  • High protection against sunburn due to the combination of different shading coefficients and high number of wires per m2..
  • It allows on some crops to reduce the use of synthetic chemicals.

 

THE IRIDIUM COLOURS®

IRIDIUM® RED
iridium_rosso_uva_da_tavola_02Positively affects the photosynthetic capacity of the plant. Inducing a good vegetative vigor may enable the early entry into production.

It favors the accumulation of sugars and fruit size, while improving organoleptic and aesthetic quality of the productions.

It allows the earlier ripening than the darker nets.

Very interesting applications on apple, pear, apricot, citrus and vine.

 

IRIDIUM® YELLOW

SAMSUNGPositively affects the photosynthetic capacity of the plant.

It induces good yields with fruit with high firmness flesh without compromising other maturation parameters. Generally favors the accumulation of dry substance.

Allows a significant advance of ripening compared to darker nets.

 

 

 

IRIDIUM® PEARL
iridium_perla_mela_Fuji_01

Characterized by a prismatic effect, converts the direct radiation in diffused radiation promoting better light penetration inside the foliage. Recommended in the anti-insect installations for the ability to reflect and diffuse much light.

Influence positively the varieties with limited bud fertility, for example seedless table grapes.

 

 

IRIDIUM® GREY
It protects from sunburn allowing the production of fruits with greater size. Indicated in areas where there are restrictions on the environmental impact.

 

 

 

 

 

IRIDIUM® BLUE

iridium_blujpegIt favors a greater compaction of the plant, creating a situation of light that the leaf interprets as of full illumination, thus reducing the tendency to elongation of shoots in the search for light. Suitable for high-density fruit plants.

It can allow the reduction of use of plant growth regulators for the limitation of the vigor of the plants

 

 

 

IRIDIUM® FLUO
iridium_fluo_melograno_01Positively affects the photosynthetic capacity of the plant.

It allows the earlier ripening than darker nets.

Very interesting applications on citrus. Inducing a good vegetative vigor may enable the early entry in production.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Knowledge of the potential of color was deepened through corporate experience gained over the years and thanks to the cooperation with the world of national research, Polytechnic University of Marche, CREA, Creso (today Agrion) and international, IRTA in Spain or University of çurukova in Turkey.

Another line of investigation that has given excellent results is the application of Iridium nets as anti-insect barrier. The University of Turin and Zagreb have conducted tests in different areas of Europe to assess the range of insects that it was possible to withhold. Research is ongoing, but we can already say that Iridium is able to contain the Moths (Cidya spp), the Anarsia (Anarsia lineatella), the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) and the Asian Bedbug (Halyomorpha halys).

Agrintech continuously invests in research and development, in open field trials, disclosure, trying to improve the potential of the culture applications..
