Protection Fabrics for Agriculture and Horticulture Use
Properly caring for plants and crops requires providing them with sufficient protections during different times and seasons throughout the year. Providing the right protection requires an understanding of a specific plant’s needs, as well as how these needs change during the course of a year. Protection fabrics offer an excellent cover for a variety of plants and crops, preventing exposure to harmful environmental conditions (extreme heat or cold, direct sunlight, heavy winds, etc.) and allowing for a more profitable harvest.
While protection fabrics are widely available online, it’s important to understand the differences in common fabrics, such as their materials, construction, and uses, as well as the specific needs of the plants and crops you’re attempting to protect. For instance, spring morning frosts can damage some crops, negatively affecting the yield when harvest time rolls around. Defending your crops and plants from the frost with a heavy-duty, high-quality protection fabric from Belton Industries provides a healthier and more fruitful yield. Some of the most common applications for woven polypropylene and polyethylene fabrics include:
- windbreaking covers (Beltech 1547, Beltech 2538)
- ground cover/weed barrier (Beltech 2911, Beltech 3859)
- temperature control
- frost protection (Beltech 1995, Beltech 2538, Beltech 1841)
- sun and heat shades (Beltech 1833, Beltech 1547)
- basic crop protection from outside elements (Beltech 1547, Beltech 2538, Beltech 1841)
Protection fabrics are employed to defend a myriad of plants and crops. The use of protection fabrics is not limited to fields, garden beds, or single posts; plants and crops in orchards, nurseries, and even greenhouses can all benefit from the right protective fabrics.
