ENY Late Summer Orchard Field Meeting
August 16, 2022
2pm - 4:30pm
Join us for a late-summer field meeting. Cornell researchers and extension specialists will give talks on management tasks to be mindful of late in the season as we head into harvest. We will then walk through the orchard to look for some of the issues discussed, and further discuss their management strategies in the field. We will then discuss how the crop is shaping up around the greater ENY region, and will allow ample time for you to share your thoughts on this year's crop, and to answer any other questions you may have.

Interseeded Cover Crop and Soil Health Field Talk
October 26, 2022
2pm - 4pm
Please join ASA for a field talk led by Brian Ziehm of Tiashoke Farm, Mark Anderson from Landview Farm, and Dr. Allen Williams of Understanding Ag. Tiashoke Farm has participated in a three-year grant funded by Northeast SARE to experiment with interseeding diverse cover crops into silage corn at the V5/V6 stage. In 2022, Tiashoke Farm partnered with Landview Farm to purchase an interseeder to sow cover crops into several hundred acres of silage corn. We will take a look at some of the results and hear from the farmers about the benefits and practical challenges of interseeding. Dr. Williams will discuss impacts he has seen on soil health and reduced input costs with the use of cover crops.
