US: New information source for tunnel berry growers

Thanks to receiving a multi-state Specialty Crops Research Initiative grant, research and extension activities related to high and low tunnel berry production are taking a significant step forward.

The project, led by Eric Hanson at Michigan State University, coordinates a considerable amount of work on high tunnel berry production taking place at a number of institutions including Penn State.

Visit the Tunnel Berries.org project web site where you can find out more about the project and obtain information on sources and manufacturers of high and low tunnels, different brands of plastics, production of berries in both tunnels and the field, and plastics recycling efforts. There are links to videos on many of the above topics, and more information is being added as time goes on.
