Brambles: Organic Production
Researchers with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture's Fruit Research Station are conducting a multi-year test of rotating cross-arm trellises for blackberries. The rotating cross-arm — or RCA — trellis makes it possible to grow berries on a nearly horizontal platform that can be covered to protect berries from cold weather, or rotated to keep berries in the protection of shade to prevent fruit diseases. The trellis systems could cost two to three times as much as traditional trellising, but could decrease input costs and may increase production. The five-year Arkansas project will be evaluating the economics of the system.
