Northeast Specialty Crop Water Symposium

December 18 - December 19

December 18-19, 2019
Burlington, Vermont

This symposium, which will be co-hosted by the University of Vermont and the USDA Northeast Climate Hub, will be targeted towards researchers, agricultural advisors (e.g., Extension, agency, and private), and industry representatives who work in northeastern specialty crops. The symposium has three overarching goals: Increase shared understanding and knowledge about how climate change will affect irrigated/rain-fed specialty crops in the Northeast, and how water-use efficiency practices can be improved; create opportunities for researchers, Extension, and technical service providers working in different specialty crop sectors to learn from one another; and create opportunities for participants in the Northeast to learn from practitioners from other parts of the United States.
