Sponsorship

From time to time, the Cornell Vegetable Program looks for financial support from agri-businesses to supplement our commitment to bring affordable, research-based knowledge to producers in New York State. Sponsorship opportunities exist to support some of our educational workshops and support VegEdge newsletter. Each sponsorship opportunity listed below provides information on sponsorship costs, target audience, estimated audience size, and company recognition.

Event Sponsorship Opportunities

Throughout the year, the Cornell Vegetable Program may seek company sponsorship of our educational meetings.

Potential Events

Currently we do not have any potential events for sponsorship.



VegEdge Sponsorship Opportunities

VegEdge is the highly regarded newsletter produced by the Cornell Vegetable Program primarily for growers and agribusiness professionals in 14 counties in western and central New York. In 2024, VegEdge will be produced every few weeks, with frequency increasing leading up to and during the growing season -- 25 issues in all! The newsletter will reach approximately 700 vegetable growers, industry representatives and university researchers across NYS and neighboring states. Readers find information on pest concerns and management, production tips, upcoming meetings, availability of educational materials, pesticide updates, cultural practices, marketing ideas and venues, and research results.
