High tunnel facilities — less complex, less expensive versions of a greenhouse — can offer Mid-South growers a way to extend the growing season for production of high value locally-grown fruits, vegetables, and cut flowers.

All Mid-South states have signed up to participate in a three-year program to verify effectiveness of the facilities, for which cost-sharing funds are available through NRCS.
