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. You can read more information on high tunnel grape production in our ATTRA publication "High Tunnel Grapes: Establishment," available at https://attra.ncat.org/attra-pub-summ...​ along with our other High Tunnel Grape publications on Pruning, Trellising, and Training and on Temperature and Soil Management. This video was produced by NCAT and is part of the High Tunnel Grape Project funded by Southern SARE and led by the University of Arkansas in collaboration with Cooperative Extension, the National Center for Appropriate Technology, and the Arkansas Association of Grape Growers.
