Low Tunnel Cover
6 feet x 5,200 feet 0.8-mil polyethylene
Low tunnel hoop supported allow growers to plant crops an extra two weeks earlier, or grow lettuce and greens into the late fall and early winter. By warming the soil in the spring, garden tunnels help plants mature up to 2 weeks earlier than normal. The extra heat can increase yield, and tunnels protect crops from garden pests. At the end of the season, tunnels protect plants from frost and wind damage, so growers can harvest later.
Low tunnel greenhouses are constructed by installing 6-foot wide cover of plastic over wire hoops that are spread 4 to 5 feet apart. The cover is pulled taut over the hoops, and the edges of the cover are secured with soil. Generally , the cover is left over the plants for 3 to 4 weeks.
Low tunnels are generally used in conjunction with black plastic mulch for weed control and enhancing soil warming. 140 lbs. per roll
Plant two weeks earlier.
