Berries

Berry production is an important economic contributor in New York, and our team is the only comprehensive berry research team in the Northeast. Growers and researchers from Cornell AgriTech and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) work together to determine what needs to be done to protect the economic livelihood of growers – and the sweet rewards for consumers. Team expertise spans horticultural practices, berry breeding and pest and disease management.
