These structures are similar to greenhouses, but they have no permanent floors or heating systems. High tunnels are very useful for producing high value crops because they allow you to extend the growing season and protect plants against harsh environments. This publication uses a case study to explain basic hoop house construction. It also covers the basics of high tunnel crop production. Go to: HT-016 to order printed copies.
