More than half of the farm acreage in Northern NY is in cropland. Northern New York Agricultural Development Program small grant research projects support the production of field crops, including forages, corn, soybeans, dry beans, flax, small grains, legumes, and wheat.
Applying the knowledge and results from NNYADP-funded projects helps regional farmers add to their farm’s efficiency, profitability, and environmental stewardship.
