Hello everybody! Well it’s been a whirlwind of a year so far to say the least. The drought conditions continue to be a major role of most of the region here in central Wisconsin. Some growers are to the point of having to start the main harvest early because of water levels. The running of wells and lift pumps are a common sight around here. From what we are hearing the crop overall looks good….so far. Growers have worked really hard to get to this point to get here at harvest time. It’s a stressful time but also a time to see the beauty of things changing.
It’s also been a bumpy year with the changes with Diazinon to growers having Flea Beetle issues this year especially. Special thank you to everyone at WSCGA as well as UW Extension for making everything come together and helping out where they can. Also happy retirement to Tom as we are in this transition, he has been doing this job longer than I have been alive…. literally. I wish a happy and safe harvest to everybody! See you next year!This article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Cranberries, grower update.
