NNYADP Research Update Meetings: Gain Valuable Insights for Your Farm!

Free Event! Registration Required

March 13 (Chazy) & March 20 (Lowville)

Target Audience: Agricultural Producers in Northern New York State

Don't miss this opportunity to learn the latest research findings from the farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program (NNYADP). 

Featured Presentations:

  • Whole farm sustainability: including nutrient mass balance and greenhouse gas emissions foot printing; the value of manure, and the use of satellite imagery to determine crop yield stability zones. (Presented by Cornell University Nutrient Management Spear Program Director Quirine M. Ketterings, Ph.D. at both meetings)
  • Alternative maple syrup production: Exploring tapping into other-than-maple tree species for syrup production can increase maple producers and landowners’ economic potential, plus how a warming climate creates new challenges for sugarmakers. (Presented by Uihlein Maple Research Forest Director Adam Wild at both meetings)

Chazy Meeting (March 13th) Only:

  • Field trials on berry varieties: Learn about promising elderberry, juneberry, honeyberry, aronia berry, and hazelnut varieties. (Presented by Willsboro Research Farm Manager Michael H. Davis, Ph.D.)
  • Edge-of-field drainage: Gain insights into data from 10 years of edge-of-field drainage on the quality of surface runoff and tile drainage, the environmental and agronomic impacts of systematic tile drainage in corn and grass fields and when planting cover crops after corn harvest, and crucial insights into the water quality impacts of widely adopted farming practices. (Presented by Miner Institute Research Scientist Laura Klaiber)

Lowville Meeting (March 20th) Only:

  • Optimizing corn silage production: Learn how to utilize regional on-farm trial data for best corn silage practices on your farm. (Presented by Cornell PRO-DAIRY Dairy Forage Systems Specialist Joe Lawrence)
  • Apple crop load management: Discover new crop thinning materials and models for improved apple quality and returns. (Presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension Tree Fruit Specialist Michael Basedow)
