University of Maine Cooperative Extension provides educational resources, consultations, and networking opportunities for Maine cranberry growers. Our experts stress the use of best management practices and integrated crop management programs to improve crop production and sustainability while simultaneously striving to reduce any risks to human health and the environment.

Coming Soon (Spring 2019): The entire UMaine Extension cranberry site will be migrating to UMaine’s new website template or system, for a nicer, cleaner, and more modern look (which is also optimized for viewing on smartphone and handheld devices/tablets).
