In this video, we talk with grower Rex Barnhill about his takeaways from growing table grapes in his high tunnel for the past two years and his reflections on being involved in the High Tunnel Grape research project. University of Arkansas Horticulture Professor Dr. Elena Garcia interviews Mr. Barnhill and discusses the advantages and difficulties of growing table grapes in high tunnels, along with the experience of leading on-farm research.
