Sunridge Nurseries was the first to recognize that there was a need for a better method of protecting vines immediately after planting into the vineyard environment. We pioneered an all inclusive protector, and tested it extensively in random block trials that proved that our unique closure mechanism was better than any other product on the market.
Sunridge Plant Protectors increases your percentage of "takes" by protecting rootstock from herbicide sprays, rabbits and other small animals, and wind damage–all with lower labor costs than mounding.
Our Protectors are:
- 8% better survival as compared to mounding
- 15% better survival as compared to no mounding
- 22% better survival as compared to plastic grow tubes
