The objective of our research is to evaluate horticultural practices for growing berry crops in the Pacific Northwest. Specific areas of study include:


  • Irrigation, fertilization, and soil management
  • Pruning and cropping practices
  • Pest, disease, and weed management
  • Cultivar selection
  • Identification of new small fruit crops


Results of this research will be the basis for modifications and improvements in production strategies used by growers of berry crops, and will clarify the impact of specific production factors on yield and quality of these crops.
