The Wisconsin Cranberry Growers Association is looking for a farm to turn into research plots. Currently, cranberry researchers in Wisconsin must rely on growers volunteering their plots to complete their work.

However, the association created a foundation that currently has raised $750,000 in private donations and $650,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture in order to find an independent plot to test the affect of disease or insects on cranberry growth. Wisconsin officials hope that the farm will provide a testing ground for research that will eventually become a world-class facility.
