A team of researchers led by Cornell AgriTech’s David Gadoury has spent the last five years refining the science and applied technology behind using ultraviolet (UV) light to kill the fungi that cause powdery mildew. This year, the team will work with leading growers and extension divisions across the US to conduct nearly 20 trials with numerous crops.
Phillip Griffiths, associate professor of plant breeding and genetics at Cornell AgriTech, has released a collection of organic grape tomato varieties that are pretty, profitable and pack a culinary punch.
Climatic changes are disrupting the entire farm cycle, from forcing delays in planting to reducing yields when the crops do grow. Cornell’s Climate Smart Farming program (CSF) supports farmers in New York state and the Northeast to put in place new practices that increase agricultural productivity and farming incomes sustainably and increase farmers' resiliency.
