Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
Farmers, especially vegetable and fruit producers, are always looking for ways to boost production and extend their growing seasons. High tunnel production is a method with growing popularity. The Alabama Cooperative Extension System has an iBook to help farmers who are beginning high tunnel production.
The “High Tunnel Crop Production Handbook” answers questions that farmers might have when considering or beginning high tunnel production. It includes real-world perspectives with chapters written by producers and crop consultants.
The High Tunnel Crop Production Handbook is based on university research and practice, and is just one part of the Alabama Extension Commercial Horticulture Team’s educational programming.
