The purpose is to review
current uses of tunnels for berry production and discuss research and education
needs. Input will be used to develop a USDA proposal to address these needs.

Eric Hanson from Michigan
State University
and Brent Black from Utah State University will present
information on high tunnel options and new research findings, and several high

traditional Berry Session and run from 11:00 to 1:00.

Whether you have
experience with tunnels or not, we need your involvement. Please plan on
joining us on December 7. Box lunches will be provided, but we need a count of
