Blackberries are a native crop to many areas of the United States and are adapted to a wide range of environments. Selection of the appropriate variety is necessary to avoid winter injury. Blackberries are established from plants or rooted cuttings in rows eight feet apart and plants three feet apart in a row.


Since the late 1800s, Oklahoma State University (then called Oklahoma A&M College) has been involved with viticulture throughout the state. Great potential exists in Oklahoma for growing grapes and making wine of high quality and with the expansion of the wine-making industry our team of experts at OSU will be in the vanguard to aid the industry in developing a strong, sustainable future.


Pecans are native to Oklahoma and are generally well adapted to the area in which they grow. However, improved or introduced varieties may not be as well adapted. Oklahoma pecan orchard management practices for improved varieties may favor those of northern, eastern or western pecan production regions depending on the location in the state.
