High Tunnels with Agritex Cover as Protective Structures for Honeydew Melon Production
Agritex is a non-woven fabric with holes which allow air and water to pass through but it prevents insects from entering. This is a promising material for miniscreen houses or high tunnel for growing honeydew melons during the regular planting season. Use of agritex cover for miniscreen houses during the regular planting season substantially decreases insect infestation, thus there is no significant use for pesticides which may cause residue problems.
