Cranberry Management Calendar - February

FEBRUARY: This is typically when Maine growers will apply sand (if needed). A recent study out of Massachusetts has researchers there recommending that a good all-around canopy management strategy appears to be this: Sand every 5 to 6 years, with pruning in between. For the least impact on yield, the study found that whenever a sanding or pruning is done, it should be done on the light side (~half inch of sand in the case of sanding, and a single pass with the pruner in the case of pruning).
