Web Design & Development
The inspiration for the look, layout and functionality of the Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture web site resulted from the creativity found at DSD Web Works.

The administrative management back-end allows specialists to create informative abstracts or upload field trials, admins can upload information on new staff members, authorized personnel can add events to the events calendar or simply add an announcement. In addition, the backend helps to easily manage sponsors, event registrants and enrollees.
An e-commerce component has been seamlessly integrated to allow for event registrations, event sponsorships and/or team donations.
All content can be cross linked to multiple and relevant topics and/or crops which allows for the site visitor to easily find relevant events and content.
