PERGOLA ORCHARD

ANTI-HAIL/ANTI-HAIL PLUS ESPALIER FOR ORCHARDS

This cultivation system consists of posts set at a 5-meter distance from each other and in rows of 4.50 to 5 meters away from each other. The posts are about two meters above the ground. A straight bracket is installed on their ends (with a width of 1.70 to 2.40 meters) to support the shoots. In case of anti-hail structures, lower and higher posts will be alternated to ensure proper support for the plants. Four steel wires (with a diameter of 3.5 mm) pass through the brackets to support to the productive branches, while a 5 mm cable will support the plant and a 2.2 wire will support the plastic irrigation tube.
