Protected Agriculture Project at SWPAC

The protected agriculture project at the Southwest Purdue Ag Center was established in 2010 with partial funding from the Specialty Crops Research Initiative program funded through the USDA. The project consists of building and conducting research of three high tunnels. High tunnels are similar to a greenhouse but differ in a few ways. High tunnels are generally less expensive to purchase and operate largely because they are passively heated by solar radiation. Some high tunnels are temporary and/or mobile.
