The head of the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association says its members had hoped the U-S-D-A would finalize any federal market order being considered before growing season started. The U-S Department of Agriculture wants to limit the nation’s cranberry crop to 75-percent of its normal size, but the decision isn’t final yet. The move would be aimed at decreasing supplies and raising prices. The federal government has done this in the past and prices did go up. If the order is approved, the extra cranberries can be sold as soil supplements or feed for cattle.
