The 2019 Empire State Producers Expo will take place on January 15-17 at the Onondaga Community College's SRC Arena & Events Center in Syracuse, NY. This annual show combines the major fruit, flower and vegetable associations of New York State in order to provide a comprehensive trade show and educational conference for New York producers, as well as neighboring states and Eastern Canada. In years past over 100 presentations were given by Cornell Cooperative Extension personnel and highly regarded speakers from across the country. Panel discussions feature some of the top industry experts and growers in New York. Between educational sessions, attendees can visit the trade show featuring over 150 commercial vendors and non-profit exhibitors.
Session topics include commodity specific programs in berries, cole crops, cut flowers, tree fruit, sweet corn, tomato, onions, root crops, vine crops, and emerging markets (hard cider and hemp); and multidisciplinary programs in weed management, precision ag, soil health, biopesticides, ag labor, forecasting and climate tools for agriculture, marketing, bird management, high tunnels, and floriculture crops in greenhouse production. DEC pesticide recertification credits and Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) credits will be offered during the appropriate educational sessions.
The complete Expo program will be available on the NYS Vegetable Growers Association website as the event draws closer.
