AHS Frost Cloth

For more than 20 years, AHS has been a reliable ally of the farmer in the defense of low temperature crops and plague attack. Using high-quality frost cloth helps to increase quality and production while, at the same time, moving forward the harvest date. Our frost cloth is a non-woven fabric cover, ultra-light and resistant to exposure to the environment; it allows light, water and air to pass through and is reusable. Frost protection is useful for various crops such as melon, tomato, green pepper, hot peppers, watermelon, pumpkin, strawberries and flowers, among others. It is also useful for the protection of banana tree fruits and banana.
