Agro textiles are an important part of technical textiles. Spun bond technology is an emerging area in order to work in Agro-textiles. Also there are various fibers or non-woven fabrics manufactured from this technology. Polypropylene is a material widely used for agro textiles covering vast products from covers, nets and bags. The paper focuses on studying effect of crop cover on LAI on growth of roses. Roses were covered after with different grades of PP cover and then leaf length and height of leaf were calculated. It was seen that Leaf Area Index (LAI) increases as the grade of PP cover increases.
