AGROTEXTILES

We were born in a part of the world famed for its farming. So it’s no surprise to learn that we have somewhat of a bent for designing intelligent nonwoven crop protection fabrics.

Few can match our knowledge of how fabrics boost protection and performance in this area, or how to tweak functionality to help crops to flourish.

Our agrotextiles cleverly manipulate the micro-environment, helping growers to replicate perfect growing conditions and protect crops from the less desirable forces of Mother Nature.

Working closely with customers, our product development programme also helps us to create multi-functional fabrics to a bespoke design or performance spec. And of course we leave no stone unturned in meeting individual requirements and producing nonwovens in-line with test protocols or industry regulations.

So if you’re an agricultural business in need of a helping hand through clever fabrics, we’d love to cultivate a relationship with you.

  • What are technical fabrics used for in agriculture?

    sector-agrotextiles
    • We’ve worked on the design and development of agrotextiles designed to:
    • Control drainage and filtration
    • Assist seed and plant propagation
    • Protect crops, bulbs and seeds
    • Replicate optimum growth conditions
    • Manage breathability
    • Control a microclimate
  • What features of a technical fabric are important in this sector?

    sector-agrotextiles
    • Innovative products that assist plant and crop growth are essential to increasing yield in this sector, so the industry seek ‘smarter’ more advanced materials that:
    • Control liquid uptake, retention and release
    • Offer lightweight durability
    • Precisely control breathability and permeability
    • Maintain wet and dry integrity
    • Must biodegrade or compost
    • Achieve multi-functional performance
  • Why are nonwovens popular in agrotextiles?

    sector-agrotextiles
    • Our technical nonwoven fabrics allow greater control of adaptability and functionality when compared to alternative fabrics and offer:
    • Precise control of porosity and tortuosity
    • Superior weight to strength ratio
    • Multi-functional performance
    • Control of liquid uptake and retention
    • Certified and compostable raw materials
    • Softness, conformability and stability
  • What solutions can Nonwovenn offer in packaging?

    sector-agrotextiles
    • With an understanding of how technical fabrics impact and improve cultivation we’re able to offer solutions that are:
    • Bespoke to the demands of each application
    • Smarter, lighter and more advanced
    • Tested on safety, quality and performance
    • Designed to a brief or performance specification
    • Regulatory approved
    • Technical and difficult to manufacture
