Cranberries, a staple on the Thanksgiving dinner menu, is a major industry in southeastern Massachusetts and also one which is increasingly using technology to improve yields, lower costs, aid environmental conditions, and remain competitive. Dawn Gates-Allen, the communications manager of the 100+ year-old Cape Cod Cranberry Growers Association joins the Cape Cod Technology Council on Friday, November 1 to discuss the growing use of technology from computerized irrigation to remote sensors to monitor bogs to wireless and internet applications which today’s farmer relies upon for success. Dawn herself is a fourth-generation cranberry farmer and employs technology widely on her bogs in Middleboro and Freetown.
