Title
(EN) Protective cover for agricultural products
Abstract
(EN)

A protective cover for protection of agricultural products comprises a fibrous nonwoven fabric exhibiting sufficient vapour permeability to 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.
