The farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program has posted its 2014 Economic Impact Report online.
The two-page report offers a concise snapshot of the value of the 2013 projects funded by the research, technical assistance, and outreach program.
The NNYADP receives funding from the New York State Legislature through the support of Senator Betty Little, Senator Patty Ritchie, Senator Joe Griffo, the state agriculture committees, and other regional and state legislators.
The NNYADP–funded projects include groundbreaking initiatives, including the development of a ‘superfruit’ and the extension of proven-successful practices to farmers across the Northern New York region.
The benefits of the research include opportunities to increase production efficiency and revenue, reduce costs and labor, and enhance animal health, soil health and water quality.
