Conwed Plastic Division was approached two years ago regarding the use of plastic netting as a means of keeping birds from feeding in vineyards and other fruit crops.

This netting maximizes the resistance against sunlight exposure and has very good tensile strength. The following demonstrates what individual farmers have achieved using Conwed Plastic Bird Control Netting.
