Peerbolt Crop Management (PCM) began in 1992. Since its inception, PCM's goal has been to facilitate the sustainable production of berry crops in the Northwest through IPM (Integrated Pest Management) based field services, on-farm research, consulting, and information dissemination. For 25 years, we have closely collaborated with growers, researchers, industry members, and government agencies, attaining a unique industry perspective and promoting sustainable production methods.
We focus on providing services to our grower and berry industry clients, to provide objective data and information, and empower them to make better informed decisions in their farming operations. We adhere strongly to principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which emphasizes a knowledge based decision-making system that accounts for environmental and biological realities in farm management. We strive to provide our clients with the knowledge they need to use the most efficacious and least harmful practices possible. Staying on the cutting edge of agricultural research and utilizing novel technologies, we are uniquely positioned to provide field-driven data and recommendations without an incentive to sell product.

PCM and the Northwest Berry Foundation (NBF)
For the past two decades, certain activities conducted by Peerbolt Crop Management have fallen in a broad category of industry-wide services. These services aim to benefit the industry as a whole and have been funded through grants and donations. This has included publications such as the Small Fruit Update, publicly funded research, and philanthropic activities like the Berry Donation Project. Seeing a need to broaden these activities, include the input of more individuals across the Northwest, and eliminate perceived conflict of interests with the for-profit company of Peerbolt Crop Management, the concept for the Northwest Berry Foundation was born. In 2015, NBF received its 501(c)(3) designation and has since taken over PCM's role in these activities. The resources and services NBF are very useful to any involved in the NW berry industry and can be found at their website:
