Low Tunnels

Hoop Supported Row Covers

Low Tunnels-Hoop Supported Row Covers

Low tunnels are ideal for the early production of many vegetable crops. They are constructed by installing 6-foot wide sheets of either slitted or perforated plastic over wire hoops that are spaced about 4 feet apart. To prevent wind damage, the cover is pulled taut over the hoops (but not stretched), and the edges are secured with soil. Generally, the cover is left over the plants for 3-4 weeks. The slits and perforations provide daytime ventilation, eliminating the need for manual venting.

Low tunnelsare generally used in conjunction with black plastic mulch for weed control and enhanced soil warming. Frost protection of 2 to 4 degrees F is afforded by the covers, but the biggest benefit is growth enhancement provided by the daily increments of solar heating. Daytime temperatures might be excessive under the cover if ambient temperatures are above 90 degrees F. Under those conditions, partial removal of the cover might be necessary, especially for tomatoes and peppers that have open blossoms.

Wire for Hoops. Number 10 gauge Smooth Galvanized Steel wire is packaged in bundles of 100. Wires are 76" long and can be inserted 6" into the soil at each end to form a support hoop that is 16" - 18" high at the center. Wires should be spaced 5' to 8' apart (see sketch below)

Crops that are suited for Planters Paper:

  • Vegetables -- warm season and cool season crops that are transplanted and for direct seeded crops that are seeded in hills such as cucumbers and squash

  • Cut flowers.

  • Use on a trial basis with any crop where black plastic mulch is used

Advantages of slitted/perforated row covers:

  • Outdoor crops may be planted about 10 days earlier than normal

  • Highest heat retention with clear perforated covers and slitted covers

  • Earlier maturity and higher yields

  • No manual ventilation necessary

  • Excellent for tomatoes, pepper, cucumbers, melons, and many other crops
