SIPS turns out for the Inauguration Street Fair

Display in the SIPS/NYSAES tent

-Magdalen Lindeberg

With berries, hops, weeds, succulents, and baskets overflowing with produce, SIPS was a significant presence at the CALS Commons “Street Fair” following  the inauguration of Cornell President Martha Pollack. SIPS affiliated displays included Hortus Forum, the weed science program, “Hops and Hemp”, and a SIPS/NYSAES tent displaying various crops together with descriptions of the associated research programs.  Students and staff from CALS and other schools visited the displays which provided a valuable opportunity to familiarize the broader Cornell community with the diversity of activities within SIPS.  The “Hops and Hemp” display even  received a visit from President Pollack!

Many thanks to the following individuals who contributed to the crop display in the SIPS/NYSAES tent: Judy Kolkman in the Nelson lab (purple and yellow corn), Daniel Sweeney in the Sorrells lab (winter wheat, malting barley, and rye), Adam Karl in the Peck lab (Zestar apples), Keith Perry (Green Mountain, Rose Valley, and Magic Molly potatoes from the Uihlein Farm), Craig Cramer (ornamentals), and Steve Reiners (squash, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, apples, okra, beets, onions, and cabbage from various Geneva sites).
