Resources

  • Costs of Producing Trailing Blackberries for an Organic, Machine-harvested Processed Market. Using information from organic research trial results at Oregon State University’s North Willamette Research and Extension Center, costs and returns of establishing and maintaining trailing blackberry (e.g., ‘Marion’ or ‘Black Diamond’) for organic production in Oregon were compiled. The cost study is provided in excel file format where growers can edit the numbers to make it more relevant for their situation. Please refer to the “Cover” and “Assumptions” sheets in the file for more information.

  • Costs of Producing Erect Blackberry in Organic Production for Fresh Market: This study allows you to evaluate the costs and returns of establishing and maintaining erect blackberry (e.g. ‘Ouachita’) for organic production in Oregon. See the budget program for more information.
