The Philip E. Marucci Center for Blueberry and Cranberry Research and Extension is a substation of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) of Rutgers University located in Chatsworth, NJ (Burlington County). The Center's goals are to:

  1. Ensure the continued production and availability of high-quality blueberries and cranberries through basic and applied research;

  2. Minimize the use of pesticides in the culture of these two crops;

  3. Maintain research programs on the identification of natural products in cranberries and blueberries with beneficial health properties;

  4. Investigate causes and controls of diseases that affect blueberries and cranberries.

The United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) program in cooperation with NJAES at the Center offers the opportunity to realize these goals.
