More than 140 farmers, educators, consultants and researchers viewed the latest Cornell grain and forage crop research at 2023 Musgrave Research Farm Field Day in Aurora, N.Y., August 3.
“As leaders in agriculture research, it’s really important to us to be able to share the results of our work with people who can put what we learn into practice,” said Margaret Smith, director of the Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station (Cornell AES) and CALS associate dean.
“Events like this enable that kind of sharing. They help us make that vital link that ensures our research efforts really make a difference in people’s lives around the state,” added Smith, who is also a corn breeder in the School of Integrative Plant Science (SIPS) Plant Breeding and Genetics Section.
In addition to the Musgrave facility, Cornell AES manages research farms, greenhouses and growth chambers on and around the Ithaca campus as well as on Long Island and in northern New York.
