A proud Cornell tradition

Cornell has been a pre-eminent source of new knowledge and practical guidance about vegetable production since I. P. Roberts first took on the agriculture program at Cornell in 1874. The Vegetable Crops PWT maintains our place at the forefront of translating knowledge to practical application through comprehensive strengths, including cultural practices, variety selection, nutrition, soils and pest management. The applied science and extension is supported by mission-oriented fundamental research on crop biology and genetics, breeding, pest biology, pesticide science and agro-ecosystem function.
