Dustin F. Lewis (PhD)

Dr. Lewis is currently the District Manager for the East Coast for BASF. Dustin grew up on a small beef cattle farm in rural East Tennessee. He received his BS and MS in Plant Sciences from the University of Tennessee and followed with a PhD in Agronomy/Crop Science/Weed Science from North Carolina State University.

His research is very applied in nature and the resulting outreach is targeted at the farm level where they can be immediately adopted by producers.

Upcoming Events

2018 CCE Adirondack Summer Excursion

July 21, 2018
9:30 am - 6:30 pm
Utica, NY

The New York State Association of Agricultural County Agents (NYSACAA) is dedicated to providing members of Cornell Cooperative Extension community with continuing education, a voice on campus and ways to keep connected with each other. Regional, statewide and national meetings bring members together for professional improvement and social interaction. 

The board of directors has once again endorsed a summer social event to bring extension folks from across the state together this summer on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad
(http://www.adirondackrr.com/adkrr/). You do not have to be a NYSACAA member to join us! This excursion is open to all county, regional and campus employees and their families. It is unfortunate that there are county fairs in progress on that day, however this was the best choice for railroad operation purposes.
