Hi, Beth here, Now that fruit set has occurred and berries are starting to expand, new phases of research are going on at the research station. In addition to the suite of herbicide and pesticide trials by Jed Colquhoun, Leslie Holland, and Allison Jonjak, aspects of fruit development are the focus of projects by the labs of Amaya Atucha, Leslie Holland, and Jyostna Mura, covering areas of calcium nutrition, heat stress responses, and the incidence of cranberry fruit rot complex. Christelle Guedot is contributing to insect monitoring and Juan Zalapa’s program will be expanding into a newly prepared bed for more plantings of more vines with varied genetic backgrounds. All the researchers are looking to sharing their ideas and current findings with growers at the Summer Field Day on August 9!This article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Beth Ann Workmaster, Cranberries, WCRS, Wisconsin Cranberry Research Station.
