Very often, especially during the harvest season, farmers need to store their crops in the fields. Not many farmers are prudent enough to use grain bunker tarps for protecting their crops. Neglecting the use of these tarps could be quite harmful. Inclement weather conditions could damage their yield quite easily. In a single stroke, the rains could wipe away weeks of hard labour. In addition, the rains could bring all the money invested in planting crops and looking after them to naught.

Crops also remain susceptible to attacks by an assortment of pests and rodents. An infestation of rats and mice could cause a significant amount of damage to the produce of the land. Similarly, sometimes factory and mill owners leave their machines in the open for various reasons. They don’t realise that the rains could easily damage their equipment
