Radar adds technological twist to age-old cranberry counting process
A farmer harvests cranberries from a flooded marsh at Cranberry Creek Cranberries Inc. in Necedah, Wisconsin. UW-Madison engineers have invented a device that automates the process of counting cranberries on the bush and estimating the harvest. Photo: Jeff Miller It's a quintessential cranberry scene: Thigh-deep in a flooded bog full of millions of floating berries, two farmers extol the merits of products made from the tart red fruit.
