High Tunnel Project (2005) - 4 pages
In 2005, we looked at increasing both the diversity of crops tested in the high tunnels and the intensity of production. Performance of plants in the high tunnels was compared to standard production techniques - otherwise similar crop management procedures were used inside and outside the high tunnel. The crops were harvested at maturity, weighed and graded. Harvesting continued until the crop was finished or the first killing frost. The date by which 50% of the crop
had matured was calculated as an indicator of the rate of crop development.
