Northern New York Agricultural Development Program-funded research supports the opportunity for Northern New York to double its maple income to more than $10 million (Farrell).

NNYADP-funded projects have developed research projects, outreach programs, and technical assistance opportunities that are providing maple producers and landowners interested in helping Northern New York with the tools needed to help the region realize its true maple industry potential.
