This year, students and faculty from the world’s five leading agricultural universities, including Cornell, will spend three days learning, networking and brainstorming at the Cornell Initiative for Digital Agriculture’s (CIDA) second annual hackathon, Feb. 28-March 1.
The first edition of What's Cropping Up? for 2020 is now available! Article topics include a corn silage management research for NYS, a new phosphorus index for NYS, and the confirmation of Soybean Cyst Nematode in six additional counties within the state.
Kudos to Mark Sorrells, professor of plant breeding and genetics and head of the Cornell Small Grains Project, who received a 2020 Brewers Association research grant for his work on the impact of storage on malting quality and seed dormancy in barley.
After more than 15 years of field use, version 1 of the New York Phosphorus Index (NY-PI) has been updated. The new version (NY-PI 2.0) incorporates new science and does a better job of addressing P loss risk while still giving farm managers options for recycling manure nutrients.
The soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is considered the number one pest of economic concern of soybeans nationally and globally, potentially causing 10-30% yield loss in the absence of above ground symptoms.
New York Certified Organic (NYCO) has announced a new location for its 2020 meeting series. Martin Auction Barn, located at 1036 NY Route 318 in Waterloo, NY, will host the meetings while the auditorium at Cornell AgriTech in Geneva is renovated.
Written by Cornell University specialists, this publication is designed to offer producers, seed and chemical dealers, and crop consultants practical information on growing and managing field corn, forages, small grains, and soybeans.
Sustainable agriculture describes crop management approaches that address the interdependent goals of increasing or at least maintaining yield while protecting the environment, conserving natural resources, and slowing climate change.
A much cooler week is in store compared to last week, with a good chance of a 1-2 inch rainfall event for upstate NY from late Sunday through Tuesday. After today’s rain, clear skies will reappear later Friday and particularly Saturday. This will lead to a widespread frost for much of northern and central NY Saturday morning.
Richard Ball, New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets commissioner, was presented the Friend of Extension Award by Cornell Cooperative Extension at a ceremony Sept. 26 at Cornell’s Statler Hotel.
