PAR* light is crucial for the reddening of your apples, especially in the last few weeks before the first harvest. Lumilys® groundcover was developed by Beaulieu Technical Textiles to provide optimal light reflection in the heart of your orchard. Over just a few weeks Lumilys® brings out the best colour in your apples. The results are nothing short of brilliant!
The effect of Lumilys® is evident. Scientific tests conducted by recognized and reputable research centres Universität Bonn (Germany), pc fruit (Belgium), KOB Kompetenzzentrum Obstbau-Bodensee (Germany) and CRESO (Italy), prove how “smart” Lumilys® groundcover really is. This efficient technology has been proven to deliver measurable results, with noticeable added value in orchards equipped with hail nets.
