Growing Better Brassicas

November 7, 2017

Growing Better Brassicas

Join us for a day of information exchange between growers, industry representatives, and university researchers with the goal of better understanding how to grow great brassica crops! This day will be filled with short presentations about topics ranging from transplant production to plant spacing and disease management, followed by ample time for growers to ask questions and discuss topics with panelists and each other.

The crops we will focus on during this day are broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts, but many topics will be relevant to other brassicas as well.

3 DEC Credits will be available.

Speakers Include:

Paul Betz- High Mowing Seeds:
High Mowing Seed's representative will share about the seed company's work to develop east coast varieties, from the production and seed company perspectives.

Thomas Bjorkman- Cornell University:
Thomas works extensively on developing the East Coast broccoli industry, searching for economically viable varieties and cropping systems which allow year-round production from Maine to Florida.

Jean-Paul Courtens- Hudson Valley Farm Hub & Roxbury Farm:
Jean-Paul will bring his experience in growing fertility for Brassica crops and in producing top quality brassicas in organic systems.

Amy Dolley- Johnny's Selected Seeds:
Amy will share information about Johnny's wide range of seed and products available to aid in quality brassica production.

Dan Kent- Kent Family Grower; Lisbon NY:
Dan Kent will share his years of experience growing vegetables including his decision to relocate his farm 20 miles away to better soils, and the impact that had on plant quality and productivity.

David Marchant- River Berry Farm; Fairfax, VT:
David Marchant brings 26 years of experience with innovative cropping systems in northern Vermont growing all types of brassicas.

Susan Scheufele- University of Massachusetts:
Susan works for U-Mass conducting research on Brassica pests and diseases, and will share a wealth of experience from her on-farm trials.

New 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. 

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 sign up. 

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.

Text alerts are easy to access. Just click on the link below and fill out a very short registration form. It takes just seconds to do - access to important information has never been so easy!!

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR CCE ENYCHP TEXT ALERTS!
