Estudio de la rentabilidad del cultivo de pimiento (Capsicum annuum) en invernadero con el uso de sombreo
Manejo básico y resultados preliminares de crecimiento y supervivencia de tencas (Tinca tinca L.) y lechugas (Lactuca sativa L.) en un prototipo acuapónico
High pH water and high alkalinity in water can be limiting factors in container production of greenhouse floriculture crops. An understanding of both is needed to accurately treat water with a high pH.

High tunnels are valuable assets to growers enabling them to produce high yields of quality horticultural crops. However, different strategies and more detailed management are required with this method of production. The objective of this workbook is to provide growers with the information and resources to use high tunnels effectively, enhance productivity and net income, and learn from the experience of other high tunnel users.

High tunnels, also referred to as “hoop houses,” are simple, plastic-covered, passive solar-heated structures in which crops are grown in the ground. High tunnels resemble greenhouses, but are less expensive to construct and maintain. Fruit and vegetable growers use them to extend the growing season and intensify production in cold climates. The advantages of growing crops in high tunnels rather than in fields are:
