The 'original' Italian... Knitted polyethylene / Frost cloth
This incredibly versatile crop cover is used to protect crops and plants from frost, heavy rain, hail, cool winds, flying insects and birds.
Mikroclima is also used to create an ideal growing environment which promotes growth and yield while extending growing seasons.
Manufactured in Italy, Mikroclima is knitted from thin strips of strong - but very light - transparent UV stabilised polyethylene thread.
Mikroclima is permeable to air and water creating an ideal growing environment. It retains its strength when wet or frosty and resists unravelling or tearing.
If care is taken in the handling and storing of Mikroclima it will last several years.
Mikroclima weighs approx. 36 grams/sqm, provides shading of around 16% and will give frost protection of 2-6° depending on local conditions and humidity.
Commercial Growers use Mikroclima directly on many crops such as winter lettuce, silverbeet and radish to protect from cold weather and birds, to shorten time until harvest and to extend the growing season.
Plants nurtured in a protected or heated environment may be placed under Mikroclima to ‘harden up’ in a semi protected environment before sale.
Flower Growers use Mikroclima for protection from cold and frost, either over structures or hoops or as a thermal blanket installed
inside a glass or plastic house to defuse light, slow down heat loss and reduce condensation.
Peony Flowers Flourish under Mikroclima - given protection from cold winds and light frosts - not so, the same plants uncovered, as above!
Home Gardeners benefit from the multiple advantages Mikroclima gives in protecting and promoting growth.
Fantastic growing condition can be acheived using cloches set up in garden plot or with raised beds.
