Minimizing Wildlife Impacts on Yield and Food Safety Risk in Vegetables

Minimizing Wildlife Impacts on Yield and Food Safety Risk in Vegetables

New York sweet corn and cucurbit production have a combined value of over $104 million. Wildlife, particularly birds and deer, can create significant damage. In 2014 a survey of vegetable growers found that 84% of them had an estimated 16% loss from birds alone. The damage is more than just economic; wildlife contamination of fresh market vegetables is a food safety issue and potential liability for growers. Dr. Darcy Telenko with the Cornell Cooperative Extension, Cornell Vegetable Program (CVP), along with Robert Hadad (CVP) and Marion Zuefle (NYS Integrated Pest Management Program), has received a New York Farm Viability Institute (NYFVI) grant to implement her research plan to test physical and chemical deterrents and provide specific recommendations about timing, placement and use of the tools.
