Crop Disease Management
Our experts utilize innovative research to understand and sustainably manage crops and the diseases that affect them. We approach crop disease with an integrative methodology that encompasses plant varieties that are disease resistant, implementing cultural practices that inhibit pathogen development and a plant's ability to withstand pathogen attack and deploying agricultural pharmaceuticals and/or biological control agents to inhibit pathogen and disease development.
We are also broadening the spectrum disease control options available to organic farms, a rapidly growing sector in New York.
Our research is elevating the quality of New York crops, ensuring that consumers have access to fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables.
