New York Corn & Soybean Growers Secure $75,000 in State Budget for Corn Research

                With the passage of the New York state 2014-2015 state budget last week, the New York Corn & Soybean Growers Association (NYCSGA) secured $75,000 in funding for corn production research. NYCSGA will use this allocation to fund projects in the 2015 growing season, such as variable rate planting trials, fertilizer applications, herbicide and pesticide applications, integrated pest management seminars, silage trials, and more.

                “The New York Corn & Soybean Growers Association is very excited about the research we are doing on utilizing precision agriculture technologies,” Julia Robbins, Executive Director of NYCSGA said. “As a result of our research, we have identified several corn and soybean projects that are needed to complement the overall initiative. This state funding will be used to help us implement some of those ‘spin-off’ corn production research projects.”
