Cranberry Production GAAMPs

  • 2015 Draft Cranberry Production GAAMPs - No changes PDF icon
  • 2014 Cranberry Production GAAMPs - Approved PDF iconMichigan has a favorable climate, proper soils, and the fruit processing capability to support a significant cranberry industry. Producers need to follow sound pesticide utilization/pest control, nutrient utilization, and other technical management practices in order to minimize the environmental risks associated with cranberry production. The cranberry plant is a wetland crop species. Therefore, construction of cranberry beds typically involves activities in wetlands. Because of this unique situation, both technical and regulatory practices were adopted for cranberry production in this set of GAAMPs. >   More
