Results Available from New York Research Projects

The Northern New York Agricultural Development Program (NNYADP) has posted the results of 18 high-priority research projects aimed at advancing agricultural environmental conservation and the local foods, dairy, crops, maple, and livestock sectors. The projects were conducted in 2021 with $300,000 in funding from the New York State Legislature, which established the program to develop the potential of the northern New York region to be a farm-based economic powerhouse. The projects included a regional food hub feasibility study; horticultural research on season extension for fruits, vegetables, and berries; investigations into climate adaptability for livestock; and evaluations of European-bred forage crops.
