- Utah State University is performing research to develop management guidelines for cut flower production.
- High tunnels, simple inexpensive greenhouses, moderate temperatures. This allows cut flowers to be grown despite unfavorable conditions.
- Snapdragon (Antirrhinum majus) and sweet pea (Lathyrus odoratus) were selected as cool season annual crops to evaluate high tunnel benefits during cool spring temperatures.
- Research will be used to develop crop management guidelines for cut flower growers in Utah.
