Frequently Asked Questions
Are Seasonal High Tunnel Systems the same as Greenhouses?
A seasonal tunnel system is a polyethylene (plastic) covered structure that is used to cover crops to extend the growing season. They are also known as high tunnels or cold tunnels. They are used to extend the growing season for crops by approximately two-three weeks on each end of the season by increasing the temperature surrounding the crop and minimizing the heat loss during the night.
