Berries

Microprop cc has been involved in the production of blueberries since 1990. We produce a wide variety of "open" varieties; meaning varieties not protected by Plant Breeders Rights (PBR) or Plant Patents. These are mostly varieties produced by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). For a list of these varieties please click here. To order plants contact Microprop cc at pickwick@mweb.co.za.

We also have several strategic partners for whom we produce PBR protected varieties. These include United Exports and Top Fruit .

United Exports is the head licensee for varieties developed by Dave Mazodes, a talented plant breeder based in Australia, and his team. These varieties are marketed as OZblue varieties. United Exports not only is in charge of the cultivars but markets the fruit as well. If you are interested in becoming a partner/farmer in this project you will have to contact Roger Horak, CEO of United Exports.

The Top Fruit varieties are currently those developed by New Zealand Plant Food Research. For more information or to order plants you can contact Pieter Zietsman.

Microprop cc is also a supplier of specialized blueberry substrate developed and produced by Pindstrup . The product specs for this substrate can be found here. To trial or order this growing media you can contact Dr. Farringer.

Consulting services relating to berry production are available from Microprop cc. Dr. Farringer , (PhD Chemistry, MS Horticulture, BS Agriculture) has over twenty years experience in the production, farming and sales of blueberries and is available to consult.
