Recently, floating row covers have become popularized in helping protect plants from multiple hazards like frost, wind, insects, and pests. They are uniquely used to organically grow plants without harming the environment around them with traps, chemical pesticides, smoke bomb, and other inhumane solutions to promote plant growth; as we all know, Agfabric promotes organic gardening and farming techniques to everyone to enhance a healthy lifestyle!

Agfabric offers a polypropylene, hand-spun cover that transmits sunlight, air, and water! Row covers are often used to protect the early stages of plant life in the Spring (immediately after dropping a seedling into the ground). The cover also acts as a physical barrier against pests, while simultaneously helping gardeners and farmers extend harvest dates by conserving heat underneath the cover to promote seed germination.

We have a huge selection of row covers, with multiple levels of light transmission and protection range:

Our lightweight row covers transmit approximately 90% of sunlight and are most commonly used to simply advert insects.
Medium weight row covers allow over 80% of sunlight transmission and can protect plants from frost, down to 29-degree Fahrenheit.
Heavy-duty row covers only permit 30% to 50% of sunlight. They are best to protect plants from extremely cold winters. 
P.S We also offer a large range of covers in different sized of width and length. Basically, we give you the opportunity to customize a row cover to your garden needs. 

Installing a row cover  is fairly easy; drape the fabric over a metal or plastic frame to hold the cover above plants. Viola! It’s like magic. 

But, nonsense aside, row covers are one of the easiest and most convenient solutions to give ultimate protection to your plants for every season!

Installation:

  1. Choose the right level of strength to cover your plants. If your main concern is to protect your crops from pests, its best to use a lightweight cover. Use a medium cover to promote seed germination and a heavy-duty cover to protect plants in cold freezing temperatures.
  2. Then, decide the appropriate width and length. If you're covering a small section of raised gardens beds, use a 6' W x 25' L row cover. If you need to cover an entire row of plants, use a 10' W x 100' L row cover.
  3. Lay the row cover gently over your plants, making sure to secure the edges with heavyweights like water buckets, bricks, clips, rocks, or sandboxes.
    If needed, trim the cover so it fits perfectly around your plants (or fold the edges, so you're not tripping over the fabric all the time).
  4. Finally, cover the secured edges with topsoil to prevent pests or insects from entering the row cover.
