High Tunnel Help

Make the most of your high-tunnel space for year-round profits and produce.

KAY LEDBETTER/TEXAS A&M AGRILIFE COMMUNICATIONS/FLICKR

Few structures immediately add more value to a farm than a high tunnel. These in-ground, covered growing spaces hold an unbelievable amount of potential for market gardeners to extend their growing season, crop diversity and, ultimately, income.

Thanks in a large part to the high tunnel grants offered by the National Resource Conservation Service — where the full cost of a high tunnel is reimbursed to the farmer — more farmers are putting more acreage under plastic. (For more information on the NRCS and its Environmental Quality Incentives Programs, visit www.nrcs.usda.gov and search “Apply for EQIP.”)

However, because growing under plastic requires slightly different management than field crops, it’s easy to underutilize this space. So if you have a tunnel or are considering getting one — and you should — this article will help you get the most out of your high tunnel and make it become a central part of your farm business.

High tunnels have the effect of moving plants about one and a half USDA hardiness zones — or 500 miles — south.
