Learn the Basics of Commercial Blackberry Production
Horticulture extension specialists at the University of Arkansas, Dr. Amanda McWhirt and Dr. Jackie Lee, conducted a Blackberry School in Arkansas through the early part of 2017. Recordings from these events were used to hold live webinars to train county agents in the fall of 2017. Funding was provided by the SRSFC for this training. The course consists of four classes timed to match the four seasons of the year. Each class is made up of 3-4 short talks that focus on the activities and best-management practices that should be conducted in blackberry production during that season. Follow along with the 13 recorded talks to learn how to successfully start, and manage a commercial blackberry operation in the Southeastern United States.
