ReduSol is a shading agent that reflects high levels of solar energy. It is wear-resistant and can be easily removed with ReduClean. For many years ReduSol is the obvious choice for protecting crops against excess heat and light.
Every shading agent has its strong features. The agent that best suits your situation mainly depends on the crop and sometimes the variety. ReduSol provides shade from the sunlight across the whole spectrum. Depending on the climate, both light-preferring and shade-preferring crops can benefit from ReduSol.
- Choose your own shading percentage
- Wear and frost-resistant
- Higher light transmission during rain
- Suitable for glass and plastic greenhouse covers
- Easy to remove with ReduClean
How to apply?
The best and longest-lasting results are obtained when the coating is applied to a clean, dry greenhouse roof, as follows:
- Fill the mixing tank with the required quantity of clean water and add ReduSol, stirring continuously.
- Stir the spray liquid frequently during the application.
- Apply ReduSol evenly to the greenhouse surface, preferably using a spraying machine.
- Do not use any non-ReduSystems shading products in combination with ReduSol.
- Do not apply when rain is expected within 6 hours, respect drying time.
How to remove?
ReduSol is easy to remove with ReduClean. Spray at least 250 liters of ReduClean per hectare, diluted with 5-7 parts of clean water, evenly on the desired roof area. Only apply ReduClean when a considerable amount of rain is expected within one week. The rain will wash off the ReduSol layer.
Frequently asked questions
Every crop reacts differently to light and climate. Light-loving crops such as roses, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers need a lot of light but also need protection from radiation peaks. Other crops love shade, such as many potted plants and orchids, in which case a high amount of shading is needed. Read more about how much light your crop needs here. For the best advice, contact your crop consultant or a ReduSystems account manager in your region.
