Success Basics in High Tunnel Production: Three Maryland Case Studies
This three-year, SARE-funded study based in the Mid-Atlantic region involved five innovative farmers in building high tunnels to investigate best practices in high-tunnel construction, tomato production and factors influencing profitability. Project coordinators used a case study approach, hiring technicians to help construct, and produce in, the high tunnels. The technicians then observed how the different farmers used and profited from high-tunnel use.
About this series: Research Innovations, part of the Ag Innovations series, capture the research findings and new strategies for advancing sustainable agricultural systems that have arisen from SARE-funded projects.
