General Research Guidelines

The purpose of the station is to generate objective research-based information that will be made available to cranberry growers and associated industries to optimize and advance cranberry production. Generally, criteria of objectivity for this research should include:

  • Replication in a manner that allows for the application of sound statistical analyses.

  • Balance and comprehensiveness so as to include a range of options for growers.

  • No generation of endorsements that benefit a single entity.


Land and facility use will be prioritized by the Research Station Advisory Committee. Parameters to be considered in this prioritization include, but are not limited to:

  • Potential benefit to the cranberry growers, industry, surrounding community and environment.

  • Availability of objective expertise and adequate funding to complete the project.

  • Consideration of potential negative impacts of the research on the Station itself or salability of the cranberries.
