Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The soil microbial community is responsible for most nutrient transformations and regenerating minerals in soils, improving plant productivity. We found an effect of high soil pH on nutrient availability, absorption, and fruit size in cranberry. This presentation will discuss differences in soil microbes among optimum and high pH cranberry soils and beneficial microbes for improving production.
