    Evaluation of Peach and Nectarine Production in High Tunnel and Field Plots

Abstract

Peaches and nectarines are not common in Iowa’s commercial fruit production due to low winter temperatures and spring frost events. Peach fruit buds can be damaged by late spring frost events, when temperatures drop below 28°F. The goal of this project is to test the economic viability of utilizing high tunnels to extend the growing season and enable these fruits to be grown reliably and successfully.
