Cranberries, Market and Harvest Situation, 2023
Quebec experienced a landmark harvest season in the fall of 2022, but yields are expected to drop significantly in 2023. This is due to the cold weather that affected the province since the end of winter, which led to a lower quantity of buds in the fields.
Wisconsin is also facing some challenges in 2023. Producers have had to deal with intense heat followed by periods of frost, which is detrimental to the viability of the buds.
Massachusetts is expected to have a fairly normal season in 2023, while New Brunswick may experience a drop in volume following last year's large harvest.
