Fruit bagging as a mature orchard technology, the biggest benefit is to improve the appearance of quality, which is mainly highlighted in the surface smoothness and color of the fruit. For example, apple, the highest degree of color without bagging is 2/3, the color area after bagging can reach more than 99%. So in addition to this, fruit bagging can also prevent what harm, here is a brief introduction to a few points.
Disease and insect control
With the continuous expansion of subtropical fruit planting in recent years, the application of fruit bagging technology is also expanding. Taking Guangzhou, China as an example, the comprehensive average effect of fruit bagging on disease and pest control reached 81.1% after bagging fruits on 45 hectares. The pest control effect of main fruit trees such as guava and mango is particularly obvious, reaching 90% on average, and 76.7% of the diseases.
Avoid injuries from bad weather
In recent years, the world has become more and more warming, summer brought high temperature, typhoon, rainstorm and other weather, orchard damage greatly. Such as strong winds blowing down fruit, bacteria that can affect fruit health after rainy days, sunburn after high temperatures, and so on. Fruit bagging is a very reliable protection from direct sunlight, strong winds, and heavy rain. Fruit bagging will be the last reliable protection for the orchard.
Pesticide spraying is usually done before and after bagging. But fruit bagging is usually done when young fruits are formed. So a large area of pesticide spraying in the orchard after bagging had no effect on the fruit. This is also very important for the middle and high end fruits on the market.
Prevent birds from stealing
When the fruit is ripe, the fragrance of the fruit will be constantly released, attracting birds and insects to steal food. The pouch acts as a barrier, protecting the fruit while also isolating the flavor.
