Here it is,
http://www.teagasc.ie/advisory/alternatives/200001/03_blueberries.htm
A yield of 5 tonnes per hectare from a mature blueberry plantation is a reasonable where there is no protection from birds at harvest time.
In Ireland, about 14 tons are produced on the 2.8 hectares available on the established plantation in Co. Offaly. Another feature is that the bushes bearing the ripening fruit are picked over three or four times in the season, which means that there is a harvesting time-frame of about 8 to 10 weeks each year and a lengthy period of availability of the fruit to consumers.

Ian.
