Women in Agriculture Discussion Group: Small Fruit & Vegetable Production plus Insect Control

July 15, 2019

Women in Agriculture Discussion Group: Small Fruit & Vegetable Production plus Insect Control

CCE Erie County and the Cornell Vegetable Program are partnering to facilitate a monthly women's discussion group on weekday evenings during the 2019 field season!

Each meeting will feature an established, innovative Farm-her leading the group on a tour of her operation and sharing her expertise on business management and production. Several guest speakers, as well as CVP staff, will be brought in to act as resource people for developing solutions to common production challenges.

The goal of the discussion group is to create a strong, professional resource network among farming women in western NY and to celebrate and recognize leading women growers. Thanks to a grant from Farm Credit East's Northeast AgEnhancement program, participation is free and will include scouting materials and factsheets.

The selected crop themes are centered around horticultural production, with an emphasis on vegetables. Each meeting will include a snack break and time to explore topics of interest to the group. This group is open to anyone professionally farming, including employees, and FFA/4-H youth age 16 & up who plan a career in horticulture.

The July 15 meeting will cover small fruit production and insect control led by Elizabeth Buck, CCE Cornell Vegetable Program, and Abby Seaman, NYS IPM Program. The meeting will be hosted by Gayle and Naomi Thorpe (Thorpe's Organic Family Farm). Gayle and Naomi will share their experiences managing a diversified organic farming operation and family farm transitions.

The 2019 Cornell Integrated Crop and Pest Management Guidelines for Commercial Vegetable Production are now available!

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 vegetable crops in New York State. Topics include general culture, nutrient management, transplant production, postharvest handling, organic production, and managing common vegetable crop pest concerns. A preview of the Vegetable Guidelines can be seen online.

Highlighted changes in the 2019 Vegetable Guidelines include:
  • Updated pesticide options for economically important vegetable crop pests.
  • New pests: beet armyworm in beets; cabbage looper and tarnished plant bug in lettuce and endive; allium leafminer in onions; and Cladosporium, Cercospora, and Stemphylium leaf spots in spinach.
Cornell Crop and Pest Management Guidelines are available as a print copy ($41), online-only access ($41), or a package combining print and online access ($57.50). Shipping charges will be added to your order.
