Grow ginger in high tunnels

An article in the NE-SARE newsletter, Ginger: An ancient crop in the new world, describes a Farmer Grant project comparing growing ginger in a greenhouse or a high tunnel.

“‘Using high tunnels was a drastic profit improvement over growing in the greenhouse,’ Bahret [the grant recipient] says. In fact, the greenhouse ginger lost money while the hoop house ginger earned almost $3,000 in income over expenses, mostly because of differences in heat and labor.”

View images of ginger production and read more at Bahret’s farm at the Old Friends Farm website.
