Final Report for FNE02-405
Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE02-405.
With this information, we encourage farmers to reach out to their local sand pit to investigate the possibility of harvesting and/or expanding an established cranberry bog or finding an exhausted bog that needs to be reclaimed. Creating a bog takes a lot of time and money; excavating the site, installing irrigation, making layers of organic matter and sand, buying plants, paying permit fees and time, because it takes three to five years to establish a bog and get it ready to harvest. Using the established bog is a quicker return to your input, although creating a new bog increases the number of bogs available in the state to harvest from.
