Mixed Berry Plantation Economics

I am a student that is conducting a management plan. One of my management recommendations is to put in a mixed berry (strawberry/blackberry) plantation on a small scale commercial operation. My questions are:How many plants do you plant per acre? What is average price of plants that will grow in east Texas? How many acres are needed to make it profitable?Is there anything other than fertilize that needs to be done (i.e. herbicide)to get plants from start to finish? If so when does it need to be conducted? How much revenue is usually gained per acre? What is the average site prep cost if using a tractor? How many berries does the average plant produce in a given year?Which species would be best to plant?
