High Tunnels at Dixon Springs

The Dixon Springs Agricultural Center is the southernmost agricultural research center for University of Illinois.  For almost 60 years, fruit and vegetable research and extension outreach has been conducted on-site, providing Midwest growers with a wide range of information on various topics.

Recent research includes white mold, a soil-borne fungus that can be a problem in many crop, especially tomatoes, grown in high tunnels. The site features three high tunnels, one of which is strictly used for hydroponic production.
