The Cornell Field Day will incorporate multiple workshop-style talks on several topics including hemp genetics and breeding, pest management, and grain and fiber production. It will also involve demonstrations of combine harvesting and baling. This hands-on field day will have interactive workshops offering DEC credits on the use of pesticides and disease management. Digital ag applications and an introduction of the USDA hemp germplasm repository will also be included.
Some of the workshops will demonstrate pest management and disease management in hemp cultivated both outdoors and indoors in high tunnels, for example. A hands-on demonstration of weed, insect and disease identification in hemp including management options will be used to educate growers. Cornell’s researchers, students, and Extension educators along with CCE staff will instruct participants and facilitate peer-based learning.
