This paper aims to present the benefits of implementing a protection system with nets against hail in table grape vineyards, as well as the problems that may occur. The study was carried out between 2013 and 2017, in a table grape vineyard. in Hinova, Mehedinti County. It was possible to analyze during the 5 years of study the behavior of vegetative phenophases of the ʻVictoriaʼ vineyard grown in a system covered with the anti-hail net, compared to another ʻVictoriaʼ vineyard cultivated in an uncovered system. In the studied period, hailstones occurred in 2014, 2016 and 2017, the most severe hail fall occurring on June 20, 2014, where the damage to the unprotected ʻVictoriaʼ vineyard was 100%. In conclusion, the protection of the vineyards with anti-hail net is beneficial, it protects to a certain extent against late spring frost, but it also draws certain shortcomings or reservations in deciding to choose for a such protection: high-cost investment, more frequent application of treatments to fight diseases and pests.
