The biological fruit production makes special demands to a covering system, because additionally to the protection of the fruits the hundred percent prevention against insects has to be guaranteed.
The VOEN covering system provides an unique flexibility because the normal base fabric can be replaced by a special net, no insects can enter the orchard through. By using these nets there are no disadvantages concerning the installation or the safety and stability of the system.
By installing further nets on the front and transverse sides a system is generated which consequently prevents the entering of insects from all directions and therefore it is the ideal covering system for all biological fruit growers.
At the moment VOEN is covering a five hectare cherry orchard for a biological producer near the Lake of Constance.
For this covering system the VOEN mesh covers with insect nets (1,3mm mesh) as base fabric is used, additionally on all sides of the system insect nets are installed. The covering is conceived that for entering the orchard only one spot needs to be opened and you can move freely inside the "cage" for cultivating the orchard.
The project was finished in 2013. From this year till 2016 no spotted wing drosophila could be found in the traps or on crops.
