UMass Cranberry Station

The mission of the UMass Cranberry Station is to maintain and enhance the economic viability of the Massachusetts cranberry industry through research, extension and to serve the public welfare by supporting economic development and protection of the environment. We have specialists in Plant Pathology, Entomology, Environmental Physiology, Plant Nutrition/Cultural Practices, Weed Science/Integrated Pest Management, and Floriculture. The Cranberry Station, located in southeastern Massachusetts, is recognized as a leader in the United States and worldwide for research and outreach programs on cranberry culture.

Construction has begun!

September 30, 2021

Construction has started at the UMass Cranberry Station. During the first week of September, the main initial activity has been site preparation for the new building. J.J. Cardosi, Inc. (Riverside, Rhode Island) was awarded the contract to oversee and conduct the renovation of the existing Lab Building, re-roofing the current Administrative Building and the construction of the new building. The renovation of the Lab Building will include upgrades to the ventilation and water systems, creation of new lab facilities and IT improvements. The new building will be approximately 5,000 square feet and house the administrative staff, faculty offices and a new meeting room that overlooks the bog.

We will be open during construction, but it will be a busy place and there may be intermittent times when the building(s) might not be accessible.  There will also be periods of time that we will have no phones, internet, electricity, or water so please be patient with us. We will try and post outages and lack of accessibility to building(s) here so please check for information and updates. 

In mid October our phone system will be out of service! Please contact faculty and staff via their email or cell phone.  This information can be found here. Thank you for your patience.

There are currently no upcoming events.
