Area growers, farmers invited to high-tunnel greenhouse tour
A high-tunnel greenhouse tour to two area high-tunnel farms will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. Friday, April 6, to show interested producers and farmers the irrigation options and vegetable and herb production techniques that allow growing earlier in the spring, later in the fall and sometimes year-round. Construction how-to’s will also be shared.
The tour will be led by University of Missouri Extension horticulture specialist Patrick Byers and Natural Resources Conserva-tion Service resource conservationist April Wilson. The Extension office in Gaines-ville said the tour is a follow-up to the very popular high-tunnel workshop held earlier this year.
