Haygrove Garden Tunnels
The Haygrove Garden Tunnel is a system that enables farmers to maximize productivity by protecting crops from extreme temperatures and humidity and other factors that can negatively impact crop yield and quality.
The Haygrove Garden Tunnel is a greenhouse system that enables farmers to grow food over a longer growing season. The tunnels allow farmers to grow food under the right climate, while protecting the crops from pests, dust and other elements that may reduce crop quality.

Goal 2: Zero hunger
The Haygrove Garden Tunnels are built in England, using polythene with thermic and light transmission properties as well as steel structures.

Number of plants that can be held at once
The Haygrove Garden Tunnels are greenhouse systems that can be built on sloped, uneven ground. The system does not require the use of concrete base/slabs. The tunnels can be assembled by the user and can be moved manually from one point to another. Also, to allow air to circulate in the tunnels, there is a roller side venting system on both sides and a protective insect net which stops pests from getting into the tunnel. The covers of the tunnels are made of polythene with high diffusion characteristics which help to diffuse about 88% of the sun rays. This scatters light as it enters the tunnel allowing it to penetrate deep into the plant canopy.The polythene covers provide a UV-B window film as well. Through the good thermic and light transmission properties of the covers, the crops growing under the tunnels are protected from harmful scorching.
It is easy to repair
The Haygrove Garden Tunnel is designed to be easy to construct, repair and protect crops from pests, dust and other elements that can reduce crop quality.
