April 22, 2010

Workshop will focus on large- and small-scale production of blackberries.
CLANTON, Ala. -- Blackberry production systems, variety trial updates and insect and disease issues of blackberries will be on the agenda June 11 at a blackberry and high-tunnel workshop in Clanton.

Hosted by when the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station, the Blackberry Spotlight Workshop will look at work currently being conducted at the Chilton Research and Extension Center. The three-hour workshop begins at 3 p.m. at the Clanton facility.

"Blackberry production for large- and small-scale commercial plantings has increased in recent years," said Gary Gray, a Regional Extension agent for commercial horticulture. "While Alabama does not have large commercial plantings, many producers for local markets have added or want to add blackberries to their operations."

Gray will discuss results and answer questions about the Experiment Station's four-year, high-tunnel blackberry project, in addition to high tunnel production of Satsumas, strawberries and vegetables.

For more information, contact Gray at (205) 280-6268 or email graygar@aces.edu.
