It can be damaging for young plants in a protected nursery environment, with close planting and plenty of shade, to be uprooted into a much more ‘challenging’ open field location. These plants can suffer and struggle to reach their full potential.

OSAM's UV stabilised Grow Tubes are designed specifically to ‘nurse’ the plant against these potentially damaging factors as it adapts to the field environment, encouraging speedy and healthy establishment. Our Grow Tubes protect plants from herbicides and browsing animals and have been specifically designed to provide the right solution to your planting needs.

70 mm OSAM Grow Tubes

Recommended for fruittrees

90 mm OSAM Grow Tubes

Recommended for vineyards and fruit trees

100 mm OSAM Grow Tubes

Recommended for vineyards; and fruit and nut trees

Features:

  • Light, strong and easy-to-install from flatpack format
  • 100% herbicide safe when installed correctly
  • Faster establishment leads to earlier cropping
  • Fewer side shoots and faster growth of the young plant
  • Made from environmentally friendly and recyclable Polypropylene
  • Life expectancy around 3-5 years depending conditions of application

 

This UV stabilised air and water permeable fabric is specifically designed as a hydrophobic anti-evaporation material for use in outdoor applications for up to four years, depending on weight of material (GSM) and spesific exposure conditions. Unlike plastic film, this biodegradable material’s higher resistance makes it last longer. Good perviousness of the weed matt ensures air, water and fertiliser reaches the plant base, maintain root humidity while optimising growth.

50 gsm OSAM Mulch Mats

Recommended for one year crops like vegetables

85 gsm OSAM Mulch Mats

Recommended for vineyards and orchards for up to 3 years lifetime

120 gsm OSAM Mulch Mats

Recommended where up to 4 years product life is required.

Features:

  • Superior non-woven fabric
  • High tensile strength and puncture resistance
  • Suppresses weed growth, save on herbicides
  • Advances soil temperatures
  • Increases water and fertiliser absorbtion
  • Reduces evaporation where up to 50% less evaporation is observed compared to uncovered areas
  • Better plant growth and yield
  • Biodegradable material

 

17 gsm Crop Protection Fleece

Our 17gsm crop protection fleece offers high moisture transmission to support growth. This paired with air permeability for temperature stability and heat retention to increase root temperatures which encourages early maturation of crops. The environmentally friendly fabric provides protection from insects and is heavy enough to provide some protection from occasional weather extremes.

40 gsm Crop Protection Fleece

Our 40gsm crop protection fleece is recommended for overwintering and use in extreme climates. It offers increased levels of strength that reduce the risk of plant breakage due to exposure to snow or frost. The increased density helps to reduce wind damage, including branch splitting and dehydration. This material does not allow water to penetrate to the plant. Managed airflow, however, creates the microclimate required to minimise the impact of temperature variances on overwintering crops.

Features:

  • Tear resistance in both directions
  • Made from environmentally friendly material
  • 17gsm crop protection fleece offers
    Good air and water permeability
    Good abrasive resistance
    Better plant growth and yield
    Provides protection from insects
  • 40gsm crop protection fleece offers
    Good air permeability
    Efficient thermal effect against frost
    High mechanical resistance
    Waterproof

 

The OSAM rotary drum mower is connected to tractor by a 3-point linkage system and mowes by rotating horizontally. Each mowing disc contains three cutting blades with springs. Both edges of the blades can cut. Thus, if one edge wears the other edge can be used as the discs ratates inversely. Cutting blades can be replaced by a special spanner without dismantling the disc. Operating safety of the mower is provided by a safety system with spring thrust. There is also a safety spring clutch on the main shaft of the mower.

OSAM fertiliser spreaders offer precision and ease of use. The fertiliser spreaders adapt to all kinds of work: spreading fertiliser across open fields, along field edges and marginal zones, late fertilisation, and application to special crops (wine-growing, tree cultivation, market-gardening, etc.). The spreaders are ideal for granular fertilizers, seed, crystalline herbicide, granular pesticide, sand and salt. The units are equipped with a strong, cast iron gearbox and a fixed agitator as standard. The drive line is shielded and the hopper is an all steel, seamless unit. Paint is heat treated and offers resistance to chemical and moisture corrosion.
