High Tunnel Tricks

The benefits and drawback of high tunnels in your berry patch.

| July/August 2017

FAYETTVILLE, Arkansas — Put high tunnels to the test with your next berry patch. A study conducted by the University of Arkansas tried out high tunnels to see how they might help berry production. Their promising results included increased yields, better fruit quality, and extended harvests when compared to open field production. There was a drawback in the pest department, though, as high tunnels can sometimes provide the sheltered comfort some particular pests look for.

If you’re struggling with getting the most out of your berry crops, learn more about this high-tunnel technique at Southern SARE, and search for “high tunnel berry production".
