Announcements

Hoepting Wins 2016 Excellence-in-IPM Award

For her exemplary work on behalf of farmers, not just in the rich muck-soil region of western New York but statewide and nationally, Christy Hoepting [CCE Cornell Vegetable Program Specialist] has earned an Excellence in IPM award from the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program (NYS IPM) at Cornell University. IPM weaves together a broad range of tactics that minimize the environmental, health and economic risks of pests and pesticides both.

"Christy is a star in Cornell Cooperative Extension," says Brian Nault, a professor of entomology at Cornell. "She's a gifted educator and advocate, more passionate and successful in promoting IPM practices than just about anyone I know." While onions are Hoepting's main research focus -- they're a high-value crop for New York, with annual sales upward of $40 million -- growers in western New York also welcome her expertise in cabbage, broccoli and garlic.

Hoepting has conducted hundreds of on-farm research trials in plant pathology, entomology, weed science, cultural practices and crop nutrition, presented at scores of stakeholder and scientific meetings, and published scores of articles and research papers. It's also why she scouts farm fields relentlessly, tracking every movement of insect and disease pests.

"Christy does her research on the farm in growers' fields," says onion grower Matt Mortellaro. "It makes us confident that her work will apply to our situations. She's extremely responsive, and she's always listening."

Christy Hoepting received her award on March 8 at CCE Cornell Vegetable Program's "Elba Muck Region Onion School" in Albion, NY.
