This webinar will discuss some of the implications of solar siting on farmland and how we can support renewable energy development while protecting farmland.

Using the CSF Growing Degree Day Calculator for Cropping Decisions - Zoom Webinar Friday, February 19, 2021, 12:00-1:00pm Speakers: Kitty O'Neil (NNY Regional Ag Team) & Brian Belcher (Cornell) The Cornell Climate Smart Farming Growing Degree Day (GDD) tool calculates heat accumulation to predict crop plant, pest and pathogen development for any field selected from a map. This webinar will provide an in-depth look into the inner workings of the tool and how Extension specialists and farmers are using the tool to make decisions to optimize varieties and yields, and minimize labor costs. Register in advance for this meeting: https://cornell.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJApc-CtqzMsE9Oz2rDd4Uc_i48D8Tw95aTk After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Irrigation Management in Processing Vegetables using the CSF Water Deficit Calculator Friday, February 26, 2021, 12:00-1:30pm Speakers: Elizabeth Buck, Steve Reiners, Julie Kickert, and Brian Belcher (Cornell University) The Cornell Climate Smart Farming Water Deficit Calculator estimates soil water content within a crop's effective root zone to inform decision makers about current and forecasted water deficits. This webinar will provide an in-depth look into how some Extension specialists and farmers are using the tool to make very precise decisions for irrigation management in processing vegetables - including looking at the physiology of drought stress in critical stages, how the tool works in detail, and examples of crops grown with irrigation or rain-fed fields.

Airblast Sprayer Calibration Workshop

Event Offers DEC Credits

July 9, 2024 : Airblast Sprayer Calibration Workshop
Kinderhook, NY

University of New Hampshire Extension Field Specialist Emeritus, George Hamilton will demonstrate the importance of and best techniques to calibrate air blast sprayers. Proper calibration will ensure effective, efficient, economical and legal spraying.  Inadequate spray coverage is usually the cause of poor spray efficacy and additional spray applications. Overuse of some sprays results in unhealthy residues and can lead to fines.

Calibration should be done several times each season, or when you incorporate any new equipment or repairs - from the tractor to the nozzle.  Join us for a refresher or send new employees for training.  This workshop is open for any grower that relies on an airblast sprayer to deliver plant protectants to fruit or vegetable crops.
