Horticultural research funded by the farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program is addressing opportunities to lengthen the growing and sales seasons and to enhance soil health and farm sustainability through the use of cover crops and other best management production practices.
Farmers across the six-county Northern NY region and the Cornell Willsboro Research Farm in Willsboro, N.Y., have hosted on-farm vegetable research trials and field days. The free webinar on November 29 is conducted in partnership with the Cornell Cooperative Extension Eastern NY Commercial Horticultural Program.
Funding for the Northern New York Agricultural Development Program is supported by the New York State Senate and administered by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets.
