When food is involved, protection from the elements is a matter of high priority. This is always the case – no matter whether you’re a large-scale supplier or a weekend gardener. When your goal is to reap a healthy crop, which is sustainable, attractive, delicious and nutritious, the avoidance of contamination is desirable for obvious reasons.
People who work in agriculture are aware of the most common practices which can help to protect crops– washing work areas and farm equipment regularly, for example – prestressed concrete panels lend themselves well to hygienic practices because the smooth side of the panel can be pressure washed and scrubbed down.
Prestressed concrete panels are an incredibly effective tool when it comes to keeping items separate from one another. It’s important to remember that while your ultimate goal is to avoid contamination altogether, a large part of ensuring protection also comes down to isolating any potential risk. In the event that grain becomes contaminated, it is important to remove the risk of this contamination spreading.
Not only can concrete panels be an effective means of creating barriers between different types of crops but also they are considerably more practical for the task than most other materials.
Concrete panels provide great solidity, without compromising flexibility or mobility. When the time comes, it’s easy enough to move concrete panels from one place to another, allowing your protection methods to develop in-line with the growth of your crops.
Prestressed concrete panels can also protect crops from far more than the wind or inclement weather; they can also be considered an effective means of preventing certain unwanted creatures and visitors from accessing your crop when your back is turned.
Animals themselves can be carriers of diseases, which can do a great deal of harm to crops. Deterring these creatures should always be a top priority for farmers and with concrete panels you are taking steps towards achieving this level of protection.
