The Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture is one of the premier regional agricultural Cornell Cooperative Extension programs in New York, serving a large multi-county area in the Champlain Valley, Capital Region and Hudson Valley of the state. The team’s Specialists work together with Cornell faculty and extension educators statewide to address the issues that impact the vegetable, tree fruit, small fruit and grape industries. The Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Program provides educational programs and information to growers and agribusiness professionals, arming them with the knowledge to profitably produce and market safe and healthful horticultural 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.
The Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Program is supported, in part, by 17 county Cornell Cooperative Extensions in the Capital Region of New York: Albany, Clinton, Columbia, Dutchess, Essex, Fulton, Greene, Orange, Montgomery, Putnam, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Ulster, Warren and Washington Counties.
