Almond Bunker Covers


Polytex is a major supplier of almond harvest covers and ground sheets for the almond industry.

Almond bunkers are a convenient and cost-effective bulk storage option to protect your almonds from rain and pests.

There are many factors that can lead to quality downgrades of almonds such as weather damage (rain = staining; hot and humid = concealed damage; hot and dry = skin flaking and split cotyledons; humid = mould) and pests (birds, rodents and insects).

Hence it is important almond stacks are covered correctly for protection against these potential factors.

When constructed correctly, almond bunkers also provide a good seal for fumigation for insect control.

Polytex has the capacity to produce a large number of almond storage covers promptly as well as arrange for quick transportation Australia wide.

The most common cover for almonds is the Polytex 250gsm Polyethylene tarpaulin, known for its excellent strength and easy handling.

This fabric can also be used as a ground sheet to protect the base layer of almonds from subsoil moisture.
