Hoophouse production provides a significant opportunity for season extension in colder climates like Michigan. Selecting, siting, building and operating a hoophouse successfully can contribute to a profitable, new enterprise for small, or larger farms.
This 2-hour Adobe Connect webinar is part of the ongoing “2014 Beginning Farmer Webinar Series.” Vegetable and fruit production in unheated hoophouses provides a significant season-extending opportunity. MSU hoophouse specialist Adam Montri and Alger County hoophouse farmer Rowan Bunce will present information on hoophouse siting, construction, operation, opportunities and problems. The presentation is designed to provide helpful information for beginners and people considering getting started with hoophouses. Questions and discussion will take place through the webinar ‘chat’ function. Supporting written materials will be available for download during and after the webinar. Participants will also receive the webinar URL after their registration and payment is received. A recording of the webinar will be made available to registered participants.
