J. -weather sparks sprinkler study By ELIZABETH CARPENTER A dry, hot summer may be ideal for business at the New Jersey shore, but further inland the state's cranberry crop has suffered from mid to upper 90 degree temperatures during July and August, otten with no rain at all in sight. MIKE FLINT, market analyst, N.J. Crop Reporting Service, cited one effect of the climate. He told 80 people attending the recent session of the American Cranberry Growerso Assn. t (ACGA) at the Cranberry/Blueberry Research Center that the 1983 N.J. cranberry crop is estimated to be 250.000 barrels, down about 50,000 40 barrels trom the 1982 crop. The good news from Walter Fort, fleidman in New Jersey for the Cran- berry Marketing Committee, was that "there will be no set aside, this year. Berries are going to move." He reminded growers that cranberries were __________________________T__________ COVER PHOTO MMMM: Mary bchamehom and Rich Iverson judged the cranberry food entries at the recent Bandon, Ore., Cranberry re Bandon, Festival.

Sections of N.J. farmland had not received rain in more than eight consecutive weeks. The value of sprinkler irrigation for cranberries in such hot, dry weather, as well as sub-freezing weather, prompted a panel discussion led by Philip E. Marucci, research professor of entomology and extension specialist in cranberry and blueberry culture. Outlining six stages of frost injury susceptibility, based on "Spring Frost Tolerance for Massachusetts Cranberry Vines," by Irving E. Demoranville, director of the Massachusetts Cranberry Experiment Station, Marucci told growers, "human judgment comes jutogud fs" He cautiondThere ~~~~~~just He cautioned there guidelines." -3 4Wf de'' 4fr 4» A« 4» 4»^ Bog construction * Vine setting, Flumes and flume work Nemasket Construction Co., Inc. * 275 Wareham St., Middleboro MA 02346 (617)947-1723 is a danger in too frequent irrigation region's comprehensive management the Pinelands, Eugster added.

It was decided to attempt to obtain a general permit from the Corps for the conversion of existing wetlands into cranberry production. If a general permit isgranted, it will not be necessry to file with the Corps. "This is a priority item because the Corps procedure takes 90 to 120 days to obtain a permit," said President George Andruk. Also discussed was the improper application of agricultural chemicals by some aerial applicators. Several complaints, it was learned, were made to the state Pesticide Board this year. Said Andruk: "There is an alarming number of people in this state who actively oppose all air application of agricultural compounds. Misuse of these materials, that is, by applying them to non-target areas, gives ammunition to these people. The careless applicator will put himself out X of business and eventually cause a severe hardship to the growers."
