Protection for chicory

Recommended solutions


In leafy vegetable production, like production of green or red chicory, it is important to protect the superior part against negative environmental factors that can compromise the commercial value (hoarfrost, heavy rain, light hail etc). After spring transplantations it is helpful to protect plants to ensure a good microclimate for a better growth.  


For this aim ARRIGONI developed new innovative bioclimatic screen for crop protection-ARRICOVER. It’s a light, very strong, transparent and

breathable fabric that can be placed directly on the crops or kept by supports like plastic arches, etc).



Frost protection
ARRICOVER transparency combined with the typical transpiration of knitted fabrics provides good gas exchange and create dried habitat.
Less humidity in natural habitat increases frost resistance of plants. As physical barrier in process of freezing ARRICOVER keeps water deposited on surface of fabric instead of crops surface. Furthermore, this freezing process on surface of ARRICOVER fabric improves exothermic reaction and creates heat which additionally increases temperature of plant habitat.


ARRICOVER provides minor fluctuations in relative humidity and reduces the stress caused by dehydration. Weaken thermal shocks by reducing temperature oscillations.
The particular transparency of ARRICOVER allows the passage of light and creates optimal conditions for photosynthesis. Good permeability of fabric creates environmental without condensation and less favorable conditions for fungal diseases development.
Thanks to the favorable microclimate under the net, salad plants protected by ARRICOVER have optimized ratio between vigor and generative potential, better vegetable visual appearance and nutritional quality.


As physical barrier ARRICOVER protects plants from heavy rain and light hail. It prevents contact with different insects, animals and birds that could cause relevant damages in plantations. Furthermore ARRICOVER protects crops from the wind action and mechanical damages. At same time the strength of the fabric allows use in windy areas without risk of tearing. In extreme weather conditions it is possible to place ARRICOVER onto non woven fabric AGRIVELO in order to obtain a higher protection and increase temperatures during sunny days
