High tunnels are a tool used by Iowa growers to extend their spring and fall growing seasons. During fall production, crops are known to be of better quality and yield higher when in a high tunnel vs. in field. Based on needs assessment and discussions with Iowa specialty crop growers, high tunnel producers are seeking ways to diversify their production and understand the unique crop management skills needed when growing new crops in a high tunnel.
