The Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture is a premier Cornell Cooperative Extension program serving a large multi-county area in the Champlain Valley, Capital Region and Hudson Valley regions of the state. The team’s Specialists work together with Cornell faculty and extension educators statewide to address the issues that impact the vegetable, tree fruit, small fruit and grape industries. The Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Program provides educational programs and information focused on food safety, variety evaluation, market development, pest management, and cultural practices. Growers and agri-business professionals must formally enroll in this program to benefit from many the educational offerings including a newsletter, direct mailings, and pest alerts.
