Improve your Post-Harvest Efficiency, Profitability, and Food Safety

August 1, 2019

Improve your Post-Harvest Efficiency, Profitability, and Food Safety

We will examine the efficient flow of wash-pack zones and highlight infrastructure, equipment and tools necessary for the post-harvest world. A walk and talk-through Pleasant Valley's set-up and practices will reveal the planning principles behind their success. Come with a post-harvest challenge or improvement project in mind and prepare for hands-on planning. Templates, personal whiteboard prompts, as well as Extension and peer support will allow you to leave this workshop with a plan, and with the knowledge and resources needed to follow through.

Pizza lunch included

1.0 NYS DEC Pesticide applicator re-certification credit in categories 1a, 10, 22 and 23 will be available. 

Cost: $10 for ENYCHP enrolled farms, $25 for all others (enroll before registering and save money!)

Allium Leafminer IPM Twilight Meeting

Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Specialists Ethan Grundberg and Teresa Rusinek will recap allium leafminer biology and distribution, discuss host preference and provide a tour of the research plots at the Hudson Valley Farm Hub. The research focuses on the use of reflective mulch to suppress ALM ovipostion on allium plants and insecticide application timing trial on leeks. The research aims to provide growers with targeted strategies to efficiently and effectively manage ALM. We welcome growers to bring securely bagged samples in clear plastic bags.

Announcements

Resources from CCE ENYCHP!

We are developing new ways to connect with the CCE ENYCHP team this year! We have a Youtube page located at this link. Check out videos on Table Grape Production, Pest Updates and the 20 Minute Ag Manager - in 4 Minutes series

We have a Facebook Page here as well as an Instagram page. We keep these places updated with current projects, events, and other interesting articles and deadlines.

There are also text alerts available. Fruit and vegetable farmers in 17 Eastern NY counties can now receive real time alerts on high risk disease and pest outbreaks texted directly to their cell phone. The Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture program, which is supported by local Cornell Cooperative Extension associations, will now offer text alerts to those that enroll in our program in 2019. 

The text alerts will be reserved for important crop alerts that could impact management decisions immediately. For instance, if there were an outbreak of Late Blight in the area, this would be transmitted to vegetable growers.

Farmers can choose the crop for which they wish to receive updates. Additionally they can request that Ag Business Alerts be sent to them. These alerts might include due dates for crop insurance deadlines, market opportunities etc.

If you have questions, please contact enychp@cornell.edu
