Tarps in the Agricultural Sector

In the agricultural sector, tarps typically serve a wide range of applications. In many cases, farmers primarily rely on hay or bunker tarps for protecting their agricultural produce. To cite an example, after harvesting hay, farmers need to protect it from direct sunlight and precipitation. If left unprotected, hay could ferment quite rapidly or combust spontaneously. In addition, it could become mouldy or mildewed too. The use of high-quality tarps can serve to eliminate these occurrences.


Similarly, smaller farmers might not have the resources for constructing permanent structures. They will invariably require covered structures for protecting their crops or their equipment. These individuals can use tarps for making temporary storage structures. Tarps can offer superlative levels of protection from the sun, precipitation and pests. Polytex tarps come in varying sizes. So, finding a tarp of the right size for covering your equipment is not a problem at all.


In some cases, farmers have even used our shelter covers for protecting their outbuildings. This is especially so during the harvest season, when the walls or the roof of the structure might develop holes. Farmers seldom have time during the harvest season. So, by covering the hole with a tarp, they can afford to get by until the end of the harvest season, at which point they will be able to carry out the necessary repairs. Besides this, farmers also use our tarps for covering their products during transportation to the markets. This is necessary to prevent the dispersal of the produce during the transportation.
