Cranberry Growers Expected to See Bumper Crop in 2022
USAgNet - 11/23/2022

With the 2022 U.S. cranberry harvest wrapping up just in time for Thanksgiving, this year's crop is forecast to be 5 percent larger than last year's crop. The 2022 cranberry crop is estimated at 7.44 million barrels but is expected to be smaller than in any of the previous three years (2018-20). Cranberry production, as measured by USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), comes from four States: Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Oregon, and New Jersey.

In Wisconsin, the largest growing State, production is forecast at 4.3 million barrels, up 3 percent from last year. Larger crops are expected in all States but most prominently in Massachusetts, where production is forecast at 2 million barrels, an 11 percent increase from last year.

According to NASS, Wisconsin and Massachusetts growers reported the crop experienced cold, wet weather and hail early in the growing season, stalling the planting season. However, warmer temperatures and better weather conditions helped cranberry plants and berries to develop.
