A TGS Exclusive

If you want to get a profitable commercial yield, protect the berries from sun scorching and hard winter weather, and reduce harvest labor, then you need a system. The RCA™ (Rotating Cross-Arm) Trellis System from TGS is that system.

The RCA System is the ultimate system for commercial blackberry operations. It's built to last — including a 25 year warranty — and it's built for success. The unique rotating cross-arm design and cane training processes of the RCA System:

  • Increase yields
  • Allow an open canopy for more sun and air movement
  • Reduce the risk of sun scorching and overheating
  • Protect canes from winter temperatures and winds
  • Position the fruit on one side of the canopy, reducing harvest labor by 33% or more


The RCA System’s multiple positions allow for easy adjustment during the growing season to maximize yield, reduce harvest labor time and protect canes during winter weather.
