Scientific discovery at NYSAES has yielded new technologies, notable plant varieties, and innovative cropping systems for over one hundred years. NYSAES faculty translate fundamental research into practices that improve the efficiency, profitability, and safety of fruit and vegetable production and processing. Interdisciplinary research among campus experts in plant disease, cropping systems, insects pests, plant breeding, food processing and sensory science is one of Geneva’s particular strengths, allowing new practice or plant variety to be evaluated from the field to consumers’ palates. Researchers have access extensive research resources, including 870 acres of research fields, orchards and vineyards in Geneva and the cutting edge technologies of Life Sciences Core Laboratories on Cornell’s main campus in Ithaca.
