The High Tunnel System is a conservation practive available through the Natural Resources Conservation Service's Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). This practice helps producers extend their growing season, improve plant and soil quality, reduce the transportation of nutrients and pesticides and improve air quality by either eliminating or reducing transportation and energy costs.
