Project Number: 1915-13000-002-01
Start Date: Jul 01, 2011
End Date: Jun 30, 2014
Hydrological monitoring stations will be established to quantify the spatial and temporal patterns of water and nutrient cycling in several cranberry bogs. Stations will be instrumented to measure volumetric streamflow and nutrient concentrations in stream water. Also, groundwater wells and soil lysimeters will be installed to characterize the nutrient chemistry of groundwater and soil water in several grower-cooperator bogs. Data will be used to model nutrient and water cycling and test improved production practices.
