JUST OFF THE PRESSES:
• The current Newsletter dated February 2015 is now available. It includes registration info on the April Pesticide Safety Training.
• During 2014, Carolyn DeMoranville worked with a group of cranberry nutrition scientists, led by John Hart, now retired from Oregon State University, to revise and expand the nutrient management guide for Oregon cranberries. This is a great resource, with illustrations about cranberry growth and yield, in addition to the nutrient information. While the nutrient recommendations are for Oregon, much of the information will be valuable to MA growers. The 52 page guide can be downloaded for free from Oregon State at this web address:
