NONWOVENS TODAY IN AGRICULTURE

Written by 

 

TYPICAL USES

          CROP COVERS: Protection of crops against severe sunlight in hot conditions. Maintaining moisture under the cover. Physically prevent the crop from insects, pests and birds. Protect the plant from severe frost in cold climates. Protect the plant from hail storms

          TURF PROTECTION PRODUCTS: Are widely used for protection and reinforcement of seeds. 

          NURSERY OVERWINTERING: Ventilation of overwintering structures is usually necessary to prevent excessive heat buildup. Opening end doors but blocking air movement at plant height reduces water loss from plants.

          GREEN HOUSES:Production of vegetable crops. Production of off-seasonal flowers, vegetables. Production of Roses, Carnation, cut-flowers etc. Plant propagation, rising of seedlings. Primary and secondary hardening nursery of Tissue cultured plant. Growth / Production of rare plants, orchids / herbs, medicinal plants

          WEED CONTROL: Weed Control Fabrics ensure excellent growth of plants with complete protection from adverse weather conditions.

          MULCHING: Expand crops life with geo jute.

          ROOT CONTROL

          CONTAINERS

          CAPILLARY MATTING

 

RESULTS OF USING NONWOVENS IN AGRICULTURE:

          Faster early and late spring vegetation.

          Increase the yield of fruits, vegetable and flowers.

          Reduce or minimize use of Pesticides.

          Enable growth of crops even in unfavorable weather conditions.

          Reduce fertilizer consumption.

 

TYPICAL CONSUMPTION OF FABRICS IN AGRICULTURE

          DRA  estimate total world consumption 538000 tons in 2005

         China 70000 tons total including 30000 tons nonwoven.

         USA 17000 tons as per report.

         Thailand 27576 tons Published data.

 

POTENTIAL IN VEGETABLE CROP END USES

          Including all states and all crops at penetration levels of 2 to 5%.

          The total potential is 35475 tons of 17 GSM spun bond nonwoven.

          India is the 3rd largest vegetable producer in the world.

 

FLORICULTURE

          Nearly 60,000 hectares is under use in India.

          A fast growing market for nonwovens

          High value product can easily justify increased initial investment cost.

 

GROUNDWORK REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE THE POTENTIAL

          Practical trials and report results under Indian conditions

          Education to farmers on efficacy of such products

          Effective distribution set up with existing marketing agencies in rural areas

          Manufacture and availability of adequate Spun bond in India

          Suitable rural agencies for creation of simple structures for fixing the fabrics.

          Effective financing pattern and incentives from the Government to induce the farmers to use first time

           

CONCLUSIONS

1.       The potential HIGH in Agricultural nonwovens

2.       Horticulture, Vegetable cultivation and Floriculture are  important areas with high potential

  1. Governmental thrust and initiative in terms of incentives is required to accelerate the use of such products for the benefit of the farmers in India. Example: Micro Irrigation incentives have helped
  2. The total potential of nearly 50,000 tons at low penetration levels indicate the success for any venture in India meeting the requirements of this market.

5.          Additional applications like root control, capillary mats etc will follow when the material is available at competitive price locally.
