Soil & Nutrient Management for Berry Crops:

Note from Charles Armstrong: During the winter and spring of 2011-2012, I participated in a 12-part “Soil and Nutrient Management for Berry Crops” webinar series, a project that was funded by NE SARE (Northeast Sustainable Research and Education Program), and which was organized by Marvin Pritts (Professor of Horticulture at Cornell Univ.) and Cathy Heidenreich (Extension Berry Specialist at Cornell Univ.).  I found them quite valuable and informative, so I have attempted to capture (and share online) some key content from the series that might be helpful for cranberry growers.


  • Other Maine Opportunities: Check out UMaine Extension’s Workshops, Classes & Events
  • Massachusetts Workshops/Meetings: Visit the UMass Cranberry Experiment Station’s Calendar on their website at: http://www.umass.edu/cranberry/newsevents/calendar.html Note: Maine growers can get pesticide recertification credits, too, for Massachusetts and other out-of-state workshops if you provide some sort of proof of attendance (including a copy of the agenda) afterwards to the Maine Board of Pesticides Control.
