There are a couple of meetings this month in the region that will focus either a session or an entire meeting on raspberry and blackberry production. The first meeting is later this week in Savannah, GA. There will be a session on Friday that will cover blackberry production issues. I will be presenting 2 joint talks, one on crop forecasting with Barry Goodwin and the other on natural pest control with Hannah Burrack. Online registration is closed, but you can still register at the event. Here is a link for more information.
Later this month, the North American Raspberry and Blackberry Growers will hold their annual meeting in Sandusky, OH. There will be both grower and research presentations, including one from Dr. John Clark, the luncheon speaker. Be prepared to laugh and learn.
