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, objectivity will be addressed with research that should:

  • Be replicated in a manner that allows for objective statistical analyses

  • Be balanced and comprehensive to include a suite of options for growers

  • Not be used to generate an endorsement that benefits a single entity


Land and facility use will be prioritized by the 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.


Application Guidelines
  • Submit separate PIRF for each project.

  • Note if it is a continuing project and any changes that have been made.

  • If a project has been discontinued, please fill out form to transmit that information.

  • If we do not receive a PIRF for a continuing project, we will assume that the project has been discontinued and may assign resources to others.

  • Check with Station Manager if there any questions about available resources.

  • Project leaders must send trial map/design to the station prior to initiation of the project.

  • The PI is responsible for securing any additional approvals needed for the project.

  • Contact the Station Manager, Wade Brockman, prior to submitting the PRF to discuss your project (715.213.4462)

  • Project Request Forms are due by April 1, 2022.
