Forecasting Potato/Tomato Late Blight Risk for YOUR Farm

February 29, 2016

Forecasting Potato/Tomato Late Blight Risk for YOUR Farm

Learn how to use the late blight forecast tool on your farm. Participants will set up their personal farm accounts on the Late Blight Decision Support System (DSS) website, defining the location of their farm/fields, and their varieties. Users can sign up for email/text alerts regarding when fungicide sprays are needed. Once basic farm/crop information is in a user's account, they can access DSS reports and input fungicide sprays by smartphone or tablet.

A laptop computer capable of wireless internet access is needed for the workshop. If you need to borrow a laptop or have questions about the workshop or the LB Decision Support System contact Carol MacNeil.

CANCELLED: Farm Food Safety and Purchasing Locally Grown Produce: What's It All Mean?

October 17, 2017
9:30 AM - 3:00 PM
Geneva, NY

This event has been cancelled due to low registration numbers. Refunds will be issued to those that pre-registered.

Attention locally-grown food buyers, purchasers, distributors, farm-to-school or -institution programs, chefs, and healthy eating programmers: 
Every person that buys locally grown produce directly from farmers should have a basic understanding of the food safety guidelines and practices that the farmers follow. What is GAPs and why is it important to me? This training will allow you to ask your questions and you will leave having a clearer understanding of standards, regulatory requirements, and the practices followed by farmers to reduce microbial risk. 

This workshop will cover programs like GAPs and HGAPs as well as the new federal regulations under the Food Safety Modernization Act. We will also discuss the regulations governing locally processed foods.
