with Conwed Netting
Lightweight support and containment features for efficient turf production
When a leading company serving the sod and turf industry contacted Conwed to help improve their turf harvesting process, we used our extensive experience in containment and agriculture applications to deliver a tailored solution.
In standard turf harvesting, grass has to grow roots deep enough to prevent separation when rolled during harvesting. Conwed carefully studied the harvesting process and manufactured an extremely lightweight netting configuration with customized joint height and mesh size. Our netting let grass seeding to grow in a uniform, solid structure, allowing early root entanglement which enabled turf producers to harvest a crop sooner than their standard process. The new harvesting system with a Conwed netting layer helped turf producers secure a second planting within the season.
