AMARILLO – High tunnels at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research station near Bushland have made a difference between having a vegetable crop and not having one.
“Texas A&M AgriLife Research is really trying to reinvigorate their vegetable program, putting extra effort into production across the state,” said Dr. Charlie Rush, AgriLife Research plant pathologist in Amarillo.
Rush’s vegetable research under a Texas Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant began in 2016. The project is aimed at high-value vegetable crop production under high tunnels, which are Quonset hut-type structures similar to greenhouses in appearance but lacking artificial heat.
