Our research and extension outreach programs is directed by Cornell University faculty in the Departments of Horticulture, Plant Pathology and Entomology. We are located at the Hudson Valley Research Laboratory, in Highland, NY, a satellite field station of the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, NY.
The laboratory is owned by a 501 (3) C, non-profit cooperative tree fruit grower organization (HVRL Inc.). This cooperative partnership with the College of Agriculture and Life Science (CALS) and Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) has provided agricultural Research and Extension on Tree Fruits and Vegetables in the Hudson Valley since 1923.
Research-based information continues to be provided to New York farmers through educational programs organized by Cornell Cooperative Extension and participating associations. Horticultural plant protection programs at the Hudson Valley Lab are especially important to sustaining the viability of agriculture in the Hudson Valley and Northeast as agricultural production is ultimately the best way to preserve open space and economic stability in the rapidly developing corridor between Albany and New York City.
