For shade net, the colors exert little influence on the price of shade nets. But the different colors could help us to achieve the desired properties, because they allow us to shape the wavelength of solar radiation, the type of lighting, the manner of its distribution and its intensity.
We take three examples to illustrate how colors affect the growth of plants.
1. Different types of radiation can affect even the amount of vitamins and healthy content in fruits. A purple shade net, for example, increases the level of vitamins such as vitamin D.
2. The red shading net were suitable for the photosynthesis of the lettuce leaves that could promote lettuce growth and yield.
3. Cordyline prefers shade for optimum growth. White and red shade nets were found to be best for growing cordyline.
