Blackberry industry seeks research, promotion board - News

Blackberry industry seeks research, promotion board - News

At the recent Fruit and Vegetable Conference in Savannah, GA, Ervin Lineberger talked about an initiative that the North American Raspberry and Blackberry Association along with a long list of other commodity groups and growers has been working on for a couple of years. They are trying to establish a Blackberry Research and Promotion Program, similar to the one that was established by the blueberry folks several years ago. Read more about it at the link above.

  1. Its interesting to me as someone relatively new to being interested in agriculture to see such specialization in terms of industry representation that the blackberry industry would be seeking its own industry group. Anyway, blackberries and raspberries are my two favorites so sounds good to me!
