Ag News and Views: December 2005
As I attempt to envision the future of agriculture and agricultural producers in Oklahoma and Texas states and an industry I grew up in and have worked in for the past 33 years numerous events come to mind that changed things rather dramatically.
I realize there are many gardeners who do not have the space or the funds to construct a full-size hoop house. With this in mind, we set our sights on developing a mini hoop house or mini tunnel, a name more appropriate for its size.

I recently visited with a number of farmers and ranchers who are looking to reduce their input costs while maintaining comparable output. One way to accomplish this is to convert from conventional farming practices to no-till.
