of High Tunnel Production
High tunnels (a.k.a. hoop houses) are dotting the landscape of many agricultural and even urban settings. They provide an intermediate level of protection from the elements and allow growers to manage nursery stock or edibles without going so far as constructing a permanent greenhouse.
This versatile structure can be a supplemental growing facility for a small family or farm, or it can be an add-on to a big operation. Irrigation systems for high tunnels are similar to those used in container grown plots or greenhouses, depending on the size of the structure.
Look to Rotator Sprinklers, Spinners & Sprays, MP Rotators, and Nelson Pressure Regulators and Control Valves for watering solutions. Since many of these plants have a high dollar value, high uniformity is crucial.
