Weather Damage

One of the primary reasons we advocate controlled environment agriculture is to eliminate damage of crops grown outdoors and in high tunnels that are not protected from weather damage. One farmer using a high tunnel to grow microgreens had the entire crop delivered by air mail free of charge to the next county when Hurricane Matthew visited, and had damage to the high tunnel frame in addition to the ripped plastic.
