Row Cover Video (Nov. 16, 2011)

Some organic growers use Polypropylene fabric row covers as insect barriers, others for frost protection. Dr. John Palumbo is doing research at the U of A Yuma Ag Center with this material for insect control and in some cases this fabric is used as a cage, plots are infested with Bagrada bugs to evaluate the damage that could be caused to the crop. The following video shows the procedures used to establish one of these trials. Check it out here:
