You are invited to attend the Fifteenth Annual NCCBRGA meeting. It is a one day educational event filled with the latest information on caneberry production. The meeting agenda (see below) reflects growers needs covering topics such as caneberry breeding, pest management, and food safety. There is a $20 lunch ticket per person required for the meeting. Pesticide credits will be available for attendees in the following categories: D, N, O, and X.

2022 NCCBRGA Annual Membership Dues are $50 and will be collected when you register online or on the day of the event at the registration desk. These monies are vital to the continued success of the association and its members. Your membership dues allow us to have an annual production meeting in addition to field days. The monies also support various research and academic projects.
Sponsors and vendors from agricultural companies that support the blackberry and raspberry industry will also be present at the meeting with vendor displays showing their latest services, equipment, and products.
