USA: Benefits of growing strawberries under low tunnels

A new video from TunnelBerries discusses the key benefits of growing strawberries under plastic low tunnels in cold climates of North America. These benefits are directly supported by data and conclusions gathered from multiple studies by researchers on the TunnelBerries team. The video also emphasizes the limitations of these studies and when growing under low tunnels is and is not appropriate.

Key benefits identified include:

  1. Protective barrier

  2. Reduction in disease incidence

  3. Higher marketable yield

  4. Extension of the growing season
