Climate change impact on NNY agriculture to be discussed


CANTON — The impact of climate change on Northern New York agriculture will be discussed as part of a crop congress from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 19 at Best Western University Inn.

Allison Chatrchyan, director of the Cornell Institute for Climate Change and Agriculture, will speak on how variable weather could affect north country farms in the near and distant future. She will present historical climate data and suggest how farmers may integrate climate change into planning to reduce risk and to seize production opportunities.

The daylong educational event also will include research findings on herbicides, double crop forage research trials, late-season forage planting alternatives and crop insurance options.

The cost is $25 per person preregistration by Feb. 7 or $30 at the door, which includes lunch and educational materials. Anyone who needs state Department of Environmental Conservation credits to retain a pesticide certification license should register soon at 379-9192, ext. 234.
