The addition of phosphorus-rich fertilizer and periodic flooding make commercial cranberry production areas a potential source of phosphorus to the lakes and streams of the northeastern United States. Harvest floods were associated with higher P loss than winter floods. However, recently renovated farms had lower P export values in floodwater, and soil porewater with high P concentrations was discharged later in the flood release.
