Making things happen for Northeast Georgia

The Seasonal High Tunnel House

Developed by USDA NRCS grant in Alabama and is approved by NRCS in Georgia and Alabama.

High Tunnels (seasonal tunnel systems for crops) are seasonal polyethylene covered structures used to cover plants to extend the growing season. High tunnels depend on the plastic covering to raise temperatures for the plants growing inside. The growing season can be extended by two to four weeks by protecting crops from potentially damaging weather conditions. Due to the micro climate inside the tunnel, crops tend to be of higher quality and produce higher yields than field-grown crops.
