High tunnels aid farm production

Wednesday, September 25, 2019
Each year, Field Day at the Southwest Research Center offers details on the advantages of growing crops in a high tunnel. Nahshon Bishop, with Lincoln University, told visiting high school students how the tunnel harnesses the sun and holds its heat and providing light. He noted produce generally stops 10 times from field to table. Growing in a tunnel reduces the steps for local production. Cold season crops such as lettuce are started in August and grow through late November. Murray Bishoff/Cassville Democrat
