Have you ever noticed how many pests plague the brassica family crops (Broccoli, Arugula, Radishes, Cabbage, Kale, Turnips, etc)?
We've got you covered!! Or rather, we've got your garden covered!
By covering your brassica crops with Insect Protection Netting, you are preventing the insects from even touching your crops. Works great for flea beetles, caterpillars, cabbage maggots, and even sweet midge!
If you're growing heading brassicas (cabbage, brocolli, cauliflower), you may want to remove the netting once the head has reached the size of a twonie if it's a humid season. The reason for this is that the netting can reduce airflow and create a damp micro-climate that can lead to head rot. If you still see white butterflies at that time of year, simply spray BTk bio-pesticide every 10 days to control caterpillars. Make sure to get a formulation that is approved for use under the National Organic Program (look for the NOP or OMRI logo).
Yes! It's freakin' expensive, I know! Can you imagine how much I spend on those huge pieces you see in our fields? But it works, and if you take care of it it can last many years (5 yrs if you're careful not to rip it!)
