That's what's known as shade cloth.  It is UV stabilized.  Ginseng usually
grows in the forest and needs shade, so commercial growers grow it under
shade cloth to get the same effect.  Shade cloth might keep birds off, but
complete coverage would shade the berries a lot.  At very least, they would
be slow to ripen.

I have seen crop covers used on ginger.  Acres and acres of it.  It must be
cheap, but it does reduce sun, as this plant requires less intense sun.
