    For better water retention and easier crop management

About Agriweave

Spilo Technical Textiles’s Agri weave product allows for a significant reduction in water and herbicide consumption, among numerous other benefits. The product is specifically designed for use in the farming of fruit, vegetables, essential oils, olives, Proteaceae, medicinal plants and flowers.

Spilo, a division of Union Spinning Mills (Pty) Ltd, was founded in 1951 in Paarl, South Africa. The business has grown from being a producer of jute-woven bags for the local grain industry to an exporter of a wide variety of synthetic technical fabrics that supplies several sectors, including agriculture.

Agri weave is a permeable yet durable woven synthetic mulch, it permits the flow of water and air to the soil, while blocking out sunlight and hence reducing evaporation.

It also affects the germination of weeds, reducing reliance on noxious herbicides and other organic chemicals, making management of crops much easier.
