Designed for the dedicated farmer, grow hobbyist, or passionate plant lover, The Rural GROWtunnel offers an enclosed cropping environment that provides protection from wind, rain, hail and intense sun. This is particularly important in a world where climate change is making weather patterns less predictable and harder for growers to plan their crops.
The controlled environment of our GROWtunnels reduces crop losses to pests, wind borne diseases, pathogens and spray drift, making it the perfect environment for both organic and conventional food production.
The Rural features a strong galvanised steel frame, specified to Blueband - BS1387 and durable ‘Solarweave’ 15% shade 160g cover film. Ventilation and climate are easily controlled with adjustable side walls that reveal in-seam stitched insect mesh, and rainwater is collected with integrated guttering.
