Due to the fact that many chemical applications are prohibited and that insects have gained resistance to insecticides, Agra Tech has engineered insect screen systems for its roof vents.
The screen system is uses fixed insect screen with nylon brushes to allow the racks to pass through but keep the bugs out.
The screen fabric itself is constructed of UV-stabilized acrylic and polyethylene materials, offering between 4-8 years of protection. Coupling the insect screen with Agra Tech’s smooth running roof vents helps keep insects out of the greenhouse environment.
(The screen is sold separately).
In order to set themselves up for a bright future, VandenLangenberg and his team worked closely with their Agra Tech’s sales engineer Jim Bergantz. “We started the conversation with Agra Tech back in 2015 and were immediately impressed by Jim Bergantz for his knowledge about the industry. We sat down and put together a plan that had everything we needed. The service that Jim provided was great and he really worked with us to get it done.”
