DEFENDER Frost Protection Implements (Low Tunnel)
Short growing seasons and early spring frosts can limit some fruit and vegetable production. For early spring crops, such as strawberry and asparagus, a frost event can significantly reduce yields. For most high-value fruit and vegetable crops, providing protection from frost is often justified.
The Andros DEFENDER Frost Protection Implement (Low Tunnel) allows growers the ability to create a controlled environment for crops. Our low tunnel system deploys the structure and the material simultaneously creating a canopy to protect your plants. Forming straight wire into a mini hoop house has always been a labor intensive job, we incorporate both the plastic placement and the wire forming in a single efficient operation. Supported with 4x4 tubing and laser precision components, the Andros design is second to none.
Low tunnels used alone can increase the air temperature around the plants by 5 to 15 degrees F or more on a sunny day.
Low tunnels have no shady spots — since they are transparent on all sides, they make the most of any available sunlight, maximizing yields .
