2022 Spring Mini-Clinic Recap

On April 21, the Spring Mini-Clinic was held in person for the first time at the Wisconsin Cranberry Research Station. To provide an opportunity for people to interact with their local community while also keeping travel times short, we offered live broadcasts at 3 locations (Cranmoor, Manitowish Waters, and Spooner) in addition to the in-person meeting at the research station. You can find a recap of the clinic here.

Newly-registered Insecticide: Fanfare

Fanfare is a not a new insecticide, having been first registered with EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) in 1985, but it is new to the cranberry industry. Fanfare is the second pyrethroid that can be applied to cranberry, with Danitol being the first. Fanfare is registered for use in Wisconsin on several crops including bushberries, caneberries, grapes, pears, strawberries, yet cranberry is NOT on the label. Click here to read more.
