Announcements

Cornell High Tunnels Website Redesigned

The Cornell High Tunnel website has been redesigned to help farmers profit from the use of high tunnels to extend their growing season and produce higher quality vegetables, fruit and flowers. The site contains information on the different types of structures and the resources for high tunnel profitability. Events, Tweets by Judson Reid, and the latest blog articles are accessible as well.

Assisting Western New York Vegetable Growers

Western New York is a national leader in vegetable production and the largest vegetable producing region in the state of New York, contributing an estimated $280 million to the state's economy each year. The region grows a diverse set of crops including tomatoes, potatoes, sweet corn, pumpkins, cabbage and peppers on large acres, and another 50 crops on smaller plantings.

The Cornell Vegetable Program's video, "Meet the Cornell Vegetable Program" provides an introduction to our team of specialists and how we assist vegetable growers throughout the region. We greatly appreciate that several WNY vegetable growers shared their thoughts on what the Cornell Vegetable Program means to them: Paul Fenton, Batavia; Mark Zittel, Eden; and Matt Mortellaro, Elba. Watch the video now!
