Spotted Lanternfly-NYS IPM Conference
You are invited to join in the battle against the Spotted Lanternfly Invasion by getting the latest information at the NYS IPM Conference on Spotted Lanternfly on August 15, 2019. Experts in spotted lanternfly research, regulation and extension will be on hand to give an update from their experiences with Spotted Lanternfly on the front lines within the quarantine zones of Southeast Pennsylvania. Research faculty and Extension staff from Penn State have been working with members of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture since 2014 on controlling the spread of Spotted Lanternfly and will be on hand to share their first hand experiences.
Representatives from the NYS IPM Program, Cornell University, NYS Department of Ag & Markets, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM) will be on also be on hand to let you know what is being done to keep Spotted Lanternfly from becoming established into NYS. If you own a business or travel to any of the quarantine zones, you'll definitely want to hear about the New York State External Quarantine and the steps you need to take to be in compliance.
Who should attend? This invasive pest affects horticultural and agricultural crops, ornamentals, landscape, forests, and shade trees in residential areas so every resident of New York could potentially be affected if Spotted Lanternfly becomes established in New York. Growers, Landscapers, Greenhouse and Nursery Operations, Christmas Tree Growers, Foresters, Master Gardeners, Master Foresters and Residents are just some of the groups who will benefit from attending this meeting.

Cost is $50 which includes a catered lunch and breaks.

Save the Date- 2020 Winter Grape Grower Conference

Thursday, March 19, 2020
SUNY Fredonia William's Center
Agenda, Registration and Trade show info available in December

Loaner Sensor Program

The loaner sensor program is an outreach program designed to introduce interested growers to the technology developed by the Efficient Vineyard researchers. It involves a technician from the Lake Erie Regional Grape Program coming out to the farm to install or attach scanners and computers to existing equipment. The subsequent data collection is then completed during normal activity such as pesticide spraying. Once the data is collected it can be sent back to researchers to generate a prescription map. The DualEM soil sensor requires a technician to operate so if you would like to have a soil scan done of your vineyard, please contact the Portland, NY Cornell Extension office and make an appointment.
