27 Apr Brambles
In this podcast, ATTRA Sustainable Agriculture Specialist Luke Freeman talks with Dr. Curt Rom of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville about growing organic brambles in high tunnels. They touch on the advantages of growing in high tunnels and some of the obstacles Dr. Rom has dealt with during his research production of blackberries and raspberries. They also touch on the economics of growing organic brambles in high tunnels and how producers have successfully used high tunnels in areas where the climate isn’t conducive to growing brambles. Luke recently updated the popular ATTRA publication, “Brambles: Organic Production,” which is now available as a free download on the ATTRA website.
