Title
(EN) PROTECTIVE COVER FOR AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS
(FR) ENVELOPPE PROTECTRICE DE PRODUITS AGRICOLES
Abstract
(EN) A protective cover for protection of agricultural products comprises a fibrous nonwoven fabric exhibiting sufficient vapour permeability to permit transmission of gases through the cover while retarding passage of dust and insects. The protective cover is provided in a tubular configuration sized to permit the cover to be positioned generally about associated agricultural products, with the cover being particularly suited for use on products prior to harvest, such as bananas. The cover may be formed from fibrous and/or filamentary elements, and may be formed from fibrous material selected from the group consisting of thermoplastic polymers, thermoset polymers, natural fibers, and combinations thereof. The nonwoven fabric may be formed with protection-enhancing agents such as insecticidal, fungicidal, algaecidal, decay-inhibiting, and UV-protective agents. The nonwoven fabric may be pigmented as desired.
(FR) Cette enveloppe protectrice de produits agricoles se compose d'un tissu nontissé, fibreux, suffisamment perméable à la vapeur d'eau pour permettre le passage des gaz à travers la couverture tout en retardant le passage de la poussière et des insectes. Cette enveloppe protectrice est dotée d'une configuration tubulaire dimensionnée pour lui permettre d'être positionnée généralement autour des produits agricoles concernés, et elle est notamment conçue pour être utilisée sur des produits, tels que des bananes, avant la récolte de celles-ci. Cette enveloppe peut être formée à partir d'éléments fibreux et/ou filamenteux, les éléments fibreux pouvant être choisis dans le groupe constitué par des polymères thermoplastiques, des polymères thermodurcissants, des fibres naturelles, et des combinaisons de ceux-ci. En outre, ce nontissé peut être formé à l'aide d'agents augmentant la protection des produits agricoles, tels que des agents insecticides, fongicides, algicides, inhibiteurs de décomposition, et agents de protection contre les ultraviolets, et il peut être pigmenté, selon les besoins.
