Press Herald Interviews Armstrong About State’s Cranberry Crop

Charlie Armstrong, a cranberry professional with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with the Portland Press Herald about the state’s cranberry crop for the article “Maine cranberry growers say it’s hard to stay out of the red.” Armstrong said in terms of health and abundance, the state’s crop is in great shape, but a recent national glut has caused cranberry prices to fall. He recommends Maine farmers who traditionally do wet harvesting for the juice industry move into dry harvesting for the fresh market because that’s where he thinks the demand is.
