A temporary agricultural structure with arched or hoop-shaped frames covered with one or more layers of clear plastic. Tunnels are high enough to drive a tractor through. Crops are grown in the ground, usually with drip irrigation. Most high tunnels are solar heated, using no electricity. They can be easily covered and uncovered, and easily assembled and disassembled in order to move to a different field site. High tunnels have a big impact on season crop extension. Also commonly referred to as a hoop house.
