Commercial cranberry management requires the ability to manipulate water during the course of the season. Activities that rely on diking systems and water control structures include flooding the beds, impounding water, manipulation of the water table in the bed, and drainage functions. Dikes are used to separate the cranberry beds into manageable units for flood harvest.
