Prothec Degradable Ties (Spools)
The Prothec System is a unique, patented vine tieing system consisting of the Prothec pliers and degradable Prothec ties. Prothec protects vines, simplifies pruning and reduces operating costs. Prothec prevents girdling and other plant damage. Prothec enables growers to quickly secure vines to trellis wires by twisting and cutting the expandable tying material in one quick action.
The prothec series of degradable tie spools are designed for use on cane pruned vines as well as for establishing cordons.
Available in photo-degradable and fully certified bio-degradable formats, the ties are designed to breakdown in 1, 2 or 3+ seasons, depending upon the color of the tie. Individual tie spools can contain 1, 2 or 3 wires.
All prothec “BIO” ties transform into compost after falling onto the ground and mixing with the soil.
The free floating wires inside the tie breakdown by coming into contact with moisture.
The tie spools are designed to be quickly applied to the vine using the prothec pliers.
The prothec pliers contain very few moving parts and virtually all parts of the pliers are available in the three repair kits.
