Shade cloth is one of the most useful tools you can have to protect your plants from unfavorable conditions that can affect your yield. Using a shade cloth can help plants grow faster and stay healthier. The shade cloth blocks 40% of light to retain cooler temperatures in extreme-heat environments. Constructed of high-density polypropylene, the cloth protects against wind, hail, and UV rays.
It’s also highly resistant to rips, tears, and fraying. Shade cloth can be draped directly over the greenhouse material being used to reduce overall light and heat exposure or run above the canopy inside the greenhouse to retain heat but reduce light exposure.
