Cornell Vegetable Program

The Cornell Vegetable Program is one of the premier regional agricultural Cornell Cooperative Extension programs in New York, serving a large multi-county region in the Western part of the state. 

The team's Vegetable Specialists work together with Cornell faculty and extension educators statewide to address the issues that impact the industry. The Cornell Vegetable Program provides educational programs and information to growers, processors and agri-business professionals, arming them with the knowledge to profitably produce and market safe and healthful vegetable crops, contributing to the viability of farms and the economic well-being of New York State. Specifically, our program focuses on food safety, variety evaluation, market development, pest management, and cultural practices.

Growers and agri-business professionals must enroll in our program to benefit from many of our educational offerings including our newsletter, direct mailings, and pest alerts.
