Row Cover Support Wire
Use support wire to create low tunnels with slitted or punched row covers, or use wires to support floating row covers. Support hoops keep the row covers off of foliage, protecting plants from frost damage and providing them with better air movement. Wire is available in coils or in pre-cut straight lengths. Straight cut pieces are easily bent to create an arch in the row cover every 4-5 ft and are available in lengths of 54" and 76". The wire coils allow you to cut support hoops to the length that fits your needs. Row cover support wire: Pre-cut number 10 smooth galvanized wire are available in bundles of 25 and 100. Wires measure 76" or 54" long and may be used with machines designed for installing hoops and covers. Wire coils are available in 500' lengths, in two thicknesses: standard .135 dia. and a thicker .148 dia. for larger hoops and heavy duty jobs.
