High Tunnel Talk

On October 4, 2012 at the Ornamental Field Day in Poplarville, MS I spoke at a station along with Dr. Christine Coker and Dr. Gary Bachman.  I did a couple of minutes on the new high tunnel a couple of times and Dr. Coker did it a couple times.  There was interest in it, although the economics of using it for commercial use is still in question.  There is some good info on high tunnels on the MSU extension website (www.msucares.com).  A list of the info links are below:
