How to choosea high-quality bale net wrap

Various innovative solutions optimize packaging processes for maximum benefit for farmers. Agrostretch stretch film and bale net wrapping are one of the most popular packaging materials in the world today. What is used most often and what is best to use?

Agrostretch – stretch film for haylage

One of the most reliable ways to keep haylage fresh is to wrap bales with stretch film. Due to its multi-layer and elasticity, such material adheres tightly to the plant mass and protects it from the negative effects of the environment. The product is stored longer, and as a result, the animal receives an optimal balanced diet with plenty of protein and juice.


Advantages of agrostretch:

  • nutrient keeping;
  • rain protection;
  • long storage period;
  • suitable for most feed stuff.

A lot of high quality stretch films are recyclable. This significantly reduces waste and economy the farm. Agrostretched bales can be stored outdoors, which is very convenient and reduces the need for transportation.

Agrostretch is often used during the grass mowing season. It is ideal for packing fresh crops with a baler. The product is cut and pressed in a machine, after which the workpiece is wrapped with several layers of film.

Many farmers who work for the export of their products actively use agrostretch bale wrapping for reliable storage of haylage. The use of stretch film in the agricultural sector helps to preserve forage for up to 24 months and longer.

Bale net wrap – universal packaging

Bale net wrap is the most popular packing material among farmers in many countries. This is justified by economy and versatility. The material can be used for all types of crops and wrapped around both haylage and straw. For automatic wrapping, it is enough to have a baler with a knitting option.

Baling is carried out quickly, while there is protection from precipitation due to multi-layer winding, much more reliable than twine.

Advantages of bale net wrap:

  • profitability;
  • wrapping speed;
  • universality;
  • air access.

The bale net wrap significantly improves hay making performance. Due to the optimal fit and retention of the bale, no additional tying is required. Allows you to pack twice as many bales as with stretch film in the same amount of time. At the same time, it is easily unpacked for feeding. Many farmers use it to pack haylage. Modern certified materials are safe and fully recyclable.

The technology of working with the bale net wrap is quite simple and does not require special equipment settings. It is enough to have a special knitting mechanism and choose the necessary sizes. Here you can read about the most popular types of balers. When working efficiently with the right and high-quality material, the result will be bales that are ideal in shape and strength.

Why is the bale net wrap is more popular than the stretch film?

Firstly, it is cheaper and allows for a more economical approach to the harvesting process. One roll of bale net wrap can produce up to 500 bales, while a roll of stretch film can produce up to 150. The average cost of the bale net wrap is almost three times less than the cost of agrostretch film.

Secondly, the bale net wrap is more versatile and can be used to pack hay that needs air access. This allows the farmer to have more packaging options.

Thirdly, the bale net wrapping is almost twice as fast as the stretch film wrapping. In this way, more bales can be harvested much faster.

At the same time, the density of a bale is almost the same and the sealing ratio does not differ much with the right settings. On average, while wrapping with the bale net wrap, two turns are used, with the stretch film – up to six. But at the same time, the quality of the corps differs slightly due to the low density and the normal fermentation process. Of course, the stretch film shows the best results in long-term storage due to the oxygen barrier and greater protection from UV radiation. But this is a slight advantage of approximately 1.5% of nutritional value. At the same time, the difference in the amount of mold manifested is also small, which is not critical.
