Growing Nets


Optimum growing results, of course, depend in the first place on the knowledge and skills of the grower. However, TenCate wants to share the responsibility for optimum and maximum results. The requirements you set for reliable mushroom growing nets depend on the length of the bed. In the past few years, TenCate has proven it can develop at market pace. All TenCate Nicolon mushroom growing nets have been produced carefully with consideration of the enormous forces these nets have to handle.

The combination of strength, limited narrowing effect and limited lengthening, assure that Nicolon growing nets will perform as planned for a long time. The open structure and monofil yarns make sure these nets can be cleaned properly, which improves hygiene and prevents contamination. In order to be able to provide this quality and service, we are constantly working on research and development. By using the latest technology, Nicolon is capable of limiting the stretch and shrink to the ultimate, minimum without causing the nets to become stiff and unmanageable.

Casing and Supplement Nets

Adding casing soil or supplement to the mushroom compost can be done using a net similar to a growing net. The difference in this case is that these nets are fabricated exactly to the width between the sideboards and that they are used as a conveyor belt. The nets are therefor always twice as long as the length of the shelve.

A winch pulls a little wagon over the bed to the end and by the rolling effect of the net the casing soil or supplement is added as a layer to the compost. The filling machine manages the thickness of the layer.
