The 2021 crop is expected to be flat to last year at around 11.5 M barrels. Wet summer weather through the growing season has contributed to higher-than-average levels of mold and unusable fruit, particularly in Wisconsin, and the East Coast growing regions. A third year of below-average crops with increased demand through the pandemic has put significant pressure on fruit supply for dried cranberries. Carry-in measured at August 31 was down from last year and as a result, 2020 fruit is very limited through the fall until the new crop can be used in early December.
