The following report clearly shows how many positive effects the VOEN covers and the automatic ventilation system have on covered orchards.
In 2011 Reinhard Vöhringer started the project to cultivate apricots in VOEN tunnels, and in this connection he used his VOEN covers with automatic ventilation consistently right from the beginning. These VOEN covers have been successfully used for covering stone fruit and berries since 2003. Especially in 2012, the farmers near Lake Constance had highly reduced yields, because of the late and severe frost period in February which lasted nearly two weeks.
Because of the constant ventilation an optimal climate is developing inside the tunnel. This in turn reduces the heat considerably compared to other conventionally used tunnel systems.
A healthy growth of the trees combined with an increased pest and disease resistance of this sensitive crop can be achieved because of the avoidance of heat accumulations incurred by strong solar radiation. All these positive experiences encouraged Reinhard Vöhringer to continue with this project into the future in order to receive some further knowledge and to improve the harvest.
