Dr. Jessica McBride, University of Connecticut

Jessica McBride, PhD, is Director of Communications at UConn's College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources where she oversees public and media relations, branding, social media, marketing, and other strategic activities to raise brand awareness and reputation.

"How to Effectively Engage With the Press"

Working with the media can be a great way for producers to raise awareness of important issues with a broad audience. Unfortunately media training isn't typically part of business or crop production training. Learn the basics of working with journalists - from tips for a successful interview to becoming a go-to resource for journalists. Andre Tougas, Tougas Family Farm and Chelcie Martin, Honey Pot Hill Orchard will share their experiences with the press from this year- what worked, what didn't and what they plan to do differently next time.

Dr. Kerik Cox, Ms. Līga Astra Kalniņa

"BioControl, Forecast Models and Apple Scab- Finding the Sweet Spot"

Disease forecasting is an important tool for tree fruit producers to predict infection events and time fungicide applications. Currently NEWA has been a critical tool for growers, however there are other disease prediction models. We will present the results of our efforts to improve the utility of these prediction models by integrating biopesticides to manage apple scab. We will address how certain biopesticides can be implemented into current disease management programs which rely heavily on the use of multi-site fungicides and still achieve adequate disease control.

[We will present the results of our efforts to improve the utility of disease prediction models and to integrate biopesticides into an apple scab management program.]

ENY Orchard Soil Health and Beneficial Fungi Meeting

August 15, 2024 : ENY Orchard Soil Health and Beneficial Fungi Meeting
Peru, NY

The soils that we grow our trees in play a critical role in the success of our orchard's productivity.  Mycorrhizal fungi provide many benefits to the soils, though it is still unclear to what extent inoculating our soils with commercial blends of these fungi may have on the growth of trees during orchard establishment.

Join the members of CCE ENYCHP and the Cornell Soil Health Program for a field meeting on the basics of soil health, the potential benefits of mycorrhizal fungi, and an update on the current project status of our SARE grant on orchard mycorrhizal products.

This meeting is intended for farmworkers, young and beginning orchardists, and experienced orchard managers wanting to learn about the basics of soil health and mycorrhizal fungi within the orchard.
