Description:

Cranberries are a rather unique crop, as they are only found in North America, and in rather select locations. One such place is southeastern Massachusetts, which happens to be one of the leading cranberry producing regions in the United States. The University of Massachusetts operates the Cranberry Station in order "to maintain and enhance the economic viability of the Massachusetts cranberry industry through research, extension, and to serve the public welfare." Here on their site, visitors can read their online newsletter, check out their fact sheets, and learn about their research projects. In the "Publications" area, visitors can peruse their latest best management practices documents and also the Cranberry Chart Book, which documents the latest innovations for keeping cranberries healthy and flourishing. Moving on, the "News & Events" section includes materials on their ongoing training programs and special events and talks.
