The Texas A&M AgriLife Research plant pathology program at Amarillo has established a growing High Plains Vegetable Program that includes research inside high tunnels as well as in the adjacent open fields. These videos are designed to help walk you through the process of building a high tunnel and provides helpful hints we’ve learned as we established our six high tunnels.
