Video Highlights Cover Crop Use in High Tunnels

A new, three-minute video in Practical Farmers of Iowa’s “Practical Cover Croppers” series explains how Carmen and Maja Black use cover crops in high tunnels on their vegetable farm in Solon, Iowa. They describe how hoop houses benefit their operation by extending the season, letting them grow fresh salad greens from April through November, and by helping them restore soil fertility with a cover crop that includes a legume.
