The cultivation and production of fresh market raspberries on the Central Coast of California is a thriving industry of some 2500 acres. This study, which took several months of research and a number of thorough interviews with local raspberry growers (once again many thanks to each one of you!), is a thorough examination of this crop and its cultural methods (including the use of macro- tunnels), its costs and returns. For growers currently growing or considering taking on the production of fresh market raspberries in coastal California, "Sample Costs to Produce Fresh Market Raspberries" is a must have addition to one's library.
