High tunnels found effective for finishing cold-tolerant annuals

Researchers studied the growth and development of 10 bedding plant species in an unheated high tunnel compared with a traditional greenhouse in northern New York and northern Indiana. They determined that, although bedding crops should be examined on a cultivar- and species-specific basis, production of cold-tolerant annuals in unheated or minimally heated high tunnels can be a viable alternative for reducing energy costs in commercial bedding plant producers located in northern latitudes. —> Read More Here
