The main purpose of shade netting is to protect people and plants from the sun. The sun as we all know can burn plants and people with its radiation rays. Humans have developed and make use of sunblock when going into direct sunlight, but plants don't always have this luxury. There are some plants that thrive in direct sunlight; however, if one needs to produce a crop that prefers partial shade on an industrial level, the best solution is shade netting.
Usually a shade percentage of 30-50% is ideal for vegetables, while 80-90% is ideal for sheltering people. Most plants will do best with a maximum of 40% - 60% shade. However, when growing some shade loving plants such as orchids and some ferns, 75% or higher maybe needed to get correct light levels.
