Registration for the 2022 New York Corn & Soybean Growers Association Summer Crop Tour is now open!


 The crop tour will be held Thursday August 11, 2022 at Catalpa Farms in Canandaigua NY. For details and tickets visit: https://2022summercroptour.eventbrite.comJoin us as we welcome our keynote speaker Eric Snodgrass of Nutrien Ag Solutions! Eric will present the Wild Side of Weather.  

THE WILD SIDE OF WEATHER Successful production agriculture has many sources of risk and changing weather conditions and forecasts drive much of our decision making. This presentation will have two primary objectives. First, history is our best teacher so we will investigate the large-scale weather processes that have influenced yields in the US over the last 40 years. We will learn together how to observe and forecast high-impact weather patterns that cause yields to break away from trend (i.e., floods, drought, heat waves, cool summers, etc). We will discuss the best way to interpret weather forecasts (both short- and long-term) and where to go for the best data and forecast graphics. We will also look at long-term trends in weather conditions to determine if there are systematic shifts in temperature and precipitation patterns that are impacting crop production in the US and abroad. Our second objective will be to forecast the weather in the US and then showcase the dominant weather features to watch for the current growing season. We will finish with a discussion about global weather impacts on agriculture, including long-term trends. 

General Admission: $75, NYCSGA Member Ticket: $50, College Student Ticket: $40 - Ticket Sales End on 8/10/22.
