The Agriculture Department says the nation's cranberry crop is on track this year to become the second largest on record.

The USDA's annual cranberry forecast calls for 7.35 million 100-pound barrels, up 6% from about 6.9 million barrels a year ago.

Strong increases were forecast in Wisconsin and Massachusetts, by far the largest cranberry producing states. But declines were expected in the smaller producing states of New Jersey, Oregon and Washington because of unfavorable weather conditions.
