Fight Frost with Row Covers
In commercial growing and home gardening it’s all about getting the most from your harvest. As temperatures begin to drop with the fall season it is important to extend your growing season as much as possible to take advantage of the time you have left. Lettuce, spinach, root vegetables and broccoli are just a few of the crops that can be harvested in the fall and winter but if you don’t have the right harvesting supplies the cold weather can put a halt to your haul.
One of the best agricultural products you can use to extend a growing season is a row cover. DeWitt is one popular brand that manufactures high quality row covers that extend the growing season and protect plants from light frost. This is the time of year when temperatures can drop significantly at night and it’s not unusual to see frost on the ground when you wake up. By using row covers you can keep your crops safe from sudden frost.
The DeWitt brand row covers are made from UV resistant spun-bound polyester and are proven to raise temperatures as much as 4 degrees while continuing to let air, light and moisture pass through. When you suspect that the air will get colder, simply drape the lightweight covers over your crop rows and rest easier knowing your plants are safe from the chill. These durable frost covers are reusable and store easily so you have a great frost protection product whenever you need it.
