This spunbonded fabric is soft and pliable, UV-stabilized, offers about 4° of frost protection, and transmits up to 90% of sunlight. Used with 8880 Wire Hoops, it protects crops from flea beetles, swede midge, cabbage worms, potato beetles, leafhoppers, even woodchucks. Also provides a gently warmed, protected environment to get sensitive crops like melons and peppers established in the field (must be removed at blossoming on most fruiting crops to ensure pollination).
Can last 2–3 seasons if you take care of it: remove it from the field as soon as possible, dry it out, and store it suspended so that rodents can’t nest in it over the winter. Weighs 0.55 oz/sq yd.
