State cranberry crop looks to be 2nd best ever

Email

Wisconsin's cranberry growers are harvesting what could be their second-largest crop ever.

The U.S. Agriculture Department predicts a yield of 3.85 million barrels, 4 percent more than a year ago.

Officials said last year's brutal winter helped the crop, by putting protective coats of ice on the vines.

Cranberries bring an estimated $350 million a year to the state's economy, with around 7,200 jobs.
