State Legislative and Agency Staff Visit NYSAES

 

A group of legislative and agency staff who regularly interact with agricultural research and economic development issues recently visited the Station for a half day of tours and dialog with faculty and extension associates. From research on the tenacious Phytophthora rots to samples of apples still in the breeding program’s pipeline, the group heard about the problems facing New York fruit and vegetable growers and success stories in research and extension. They were also able to see firsthand the impacts of state-funded research and facilities on campus, including the Vinification and Brewing Lab, research on cold-hardy grapes for northern New York, the nine-acre farm dedicated to Phytophthora projects, and some samples of SnapDragon and RubyFrost apples for the trip back to Albany.
