Bird Netting for Grapes

    Many producers of fruit crops struggle with controlling birds.  It is not impossible to lose or have damaged an entire crop because of birds.  Add in the drought effects this year and birds are after fruit for food and moisture.  This machine fits on a 3 point of a tractor and gently unrolls netting down the row.  

  Of course the real problem is getting the netting off after the season.  In this case it does have a power roller but you will have to prune back branches growing through the netting to get it to roll up.
