28th and 29th of July 2014:
Two regional field discussions for northern NY horticultural growers
Each program will run from 6pm to 8pm with a picnic supper, farm tour, and discussion of vegetable production projects focused on season extension, inter-row cover crops, reduced zone tillage, crop pests: leek moth and spotted wing drosophila, and more.
The Monday, July 28 event will be held at the Cornell Willsboro Research Farm, 48 Sayward Lane, Willsboro; to register, call Cornell Cooperative Extension of Clinton County at 518-561-7450 or email email@example.com.
The Tuesday, July 20 event will be held at the Extension Learning Farm, Route 68, Canton; to register, call Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County at 315-379-9192 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guest speakers include Cornell Vegetable Program Specialist Judson Reid, Cornell Small Farms Program Director Anu Rangarajan, Cornell University Entomologist Masanori Seto, and Amy Ivy with the Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture Program.
Cornell Willsboro Research Farm Manager Michael Davis will join the group at the Willsboro event.
‘These evening field meetings are a relaxed way for growers to learn the latest research results and early impressions from current on-farm projects in the region. The discussions will help growers enhance their production efficiencies and the potential for profitability,’ says Ivy, director of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Clinton County.
These events are open to the public and funded in part by the farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program, a research and technical program for the six northernmost counties of New York State: Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence. The NNYADP/www.nnyagdev.org has provided grant funding for much of the project work that will be discussed.
