Empire Farm Days

Each year, the Cornell Climate Smart Farming (CSF) Team, a program of CICCA, participates in the annual Empire Farm Days in Seneca Falls, NY. This year’s event was from August 9th to the 11th, and was attended by farmers, extension professionals, and gardeners from New York State and beyond. The CSF Team displayed its new CSF Decision Tools on an interactive, touch-screen computer. Farmers were able to enter their farm’s location and see outputs on tools such as the GDD Calculator, Irrigation/Water Deficit Calculator, and Frost/Freeze Risk Tool, which can help them make informed, climate-smart decisions.
