New York is extremely diverse in livestock and crop production. In the US, it ranks 2nd in apple production, 3rd in milk production and has a variety of livestock and specialty crop producers throughout the state. The livestock industry accounts for numerous corn silage, alfalfa, triticale, and wheat acres grown. Grain crop production comprises of corn, soybeans, and wheat where specialty crops such as sweet corn, potatoes, onions, and grapes are grown throughout the state as well. Each year, growers face challenges that can reduce yields and ultimately affect the quality of the harvested crop. Looking ahead, we need to be mindful of things that could affect our producers. Pests such as weeds, diseases, and insects can be detrimental to livestock and crop producers alike.
