Robust system for rain sensitive fruit


Anti-rain covers are made from a woven cloth that is then made water proof with a plastic layer coating the film. This high quality cover forms a crucial component of this extremely durable system to protect rain sensitive fruit from damage.


Manufactured by Valente in Italy, with a reputation for quality and clever design, this system is industry leading. Prestressed concrete poles are connected by steel cables and wires. Anti-rain covers are reinforced by placing poles closer together and anchoring them to the ground. Hoods are designed with a galvanized steel strip, for firm connection to the pole. 

These rain covers are proven to protect sensitive crops for an affordable, low maintenance system that lasts more than a lifetime. Easily combine with anti-hail net for maximum protection.

WAYKI by Valente - cut labour hours and boost fruit quality


Developed in Chile by Wayki and manufactured by Valente, the Wayki system is a patented, semi-automatic anti-rain cover for rain sensitive crops. Slashing labour hours to a minimum, a 1 hectare orchard can be covered in less than 1 hour.


This technology is an absolute game-changer prior to harvest when labour teams are busy and untimely weather can wipe out a season’s profits. 


When it is not raining, trees can thrive in an open field environment for enhanced colour and sugar to improve class 1 yield and packout.

Wayki® system options:

  • Anti-rain

  • Anti-hail

  • Anti-wind


For superior protection, combine Wayki rain-cover with a Valente anti-hail cover. Work with expert designers for a detailed solution and outstanding results.

  • What is the best rain and hail protection in Australia?
    When deciding to install crop protection, it is imperative that growers choose a robust and tested system that will stand-up to the harshest conditions. It must be safe, durable and affordable. Experience, design expertise and top quality materials are also essential for a good result. Valente Pali certainly ticks all of these boxes and is arguably the leading crop protection product in Australia. Valente Pali receive endorsement from fifth generation growers Chris and Alex Turnbull who have experienced devastating losses during storms and consequently explored many corners of the globe in search of a product to mitigate weather damage.
  • Do I need to protect my crops?
    Crop protection is the smartest way to cultivate valuable produce. By choosing to invest in a crop protection system, you are choosing to invest in your business and reduce the risks that are out of your control. Most growers who have faced crop loss due to storms prior to harvest go on to cover their crops for future years. Research is also showing that sunburn will become a major factor during the next 10-20 years and that growing class 1 fruit will depend on anti-sun netting.
  • What does it cost to cover my orchard and what is the return on investment?
    The answer to this is not straight forward because there are so many factors to consider. Please do get in touch to have a conversation about your unique needs so that we can give you a more accurate indication of a cost structure that would deliver an efficient solution.
