High Tunnel Manual

High tunnels are valuable assets to growers enabling them to produce high yields of quality horticultural crops. However, different strategies and more detailed management are required with this method of production. The objective of this manual is to provide high school agricultural educators and other growers with the information and resources to use high tunnels effectively, enhance productivity and net income, and learn from the experience of other high tunnel users.
