Every year, more growers are turning to protected culture to deal with unpredictable weather and to meet out-of-season demand for local food. Many end up spinning their wheels, wasting time and money on unprofitable crops grown in ways that don't make the most of their precious greenhouse space. This book levels the playing field with a decision-making framework that goes beyond a list of simple do's and don'ts.

With comprehensive chapters on temperature control and crop steering, pruning and trellising, grafting, and more, Mefferd's book is full of techniques and strategies that can help farms stay profitable, satisfy customers, and become an integral part of relocalizing our food system.
