Farmer’s Manual for Row Covers

Row covers are structures used to protect plants from undesirable factors such as insects and frost. They have been used extensively in temperate countries as a safeguard for unexpected drops in temperature. More recently newer fabrics are being used to grow pest-free crops. Some of the newer fabrics are very light and can be thrown over most crops as “floating covers” (no hoop supports).

In our climatic conditions our aims would be to reduce wind speed and heat stress, to shelter from rain and to exclude pests.
