  • Why is Valente considered a leader in crop protection?
    Since 1967, the Valente family has refined production and design techniques to provide innovative solutions that will save you time and money. Starting out in Italy, the company is now reputable across the globe for robust crop protection systems that are tested and proven under harsh conditions. Unlike other companies, Valente produce pre-stressed concrete and galvanized steel posts, anti-hail, windproof and sun-proof solutions so you can obtain all components in one place. Their vision is to support growers build a successful business. They understand complex needs when it comes to designing an efficient, safe, durable and effective structure that will protect and enhance your crop.
  • 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 premium produce. By choosing to invest in a crop protection system, you reduce the risks that are out of your control and command control over fruit quality. 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 cost of protection is invaluable when compared to losing your annual crop in a single storm. In that case, the return on investment is instant. But, the answer to this is not straight forward because there are so many factors to consider and the equation may need to be calculated over a few seasons. Factors such as the volume of class one fruit achieved from the right protection that will fetch the highest price. Add to this, the size of your block, the potential yield, the frequency of adverse weather conditions, and the cost of our services all play a role in determining the return on investment. We understand the complexity of this calculation and encourage you to get in touch with us to have a conversation about your specific needs and concerns. Our team at Inspired Ag new can work with you to tailor a solution that aligns with your goals and provides the best possible return on investment for your annual crop.
