The Cornell Cooperative Extension Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Program and the Lake Ontario Fruit Program will be cooperatively hosting the 2021 Cornell NYS Tree Fruit Conference online from Feb 2-4. Due to COVID-19 limitations on live meetings, this program replaces CCE-LOF's Winter Fruit Schools and CCE-ENYCHP's Fruit & Vegetable Conference (tree fruit section).
Live meetings will be hosted over the Zoom webinar platform, and will consist of 12 sessions over the course of three days; 2 morning sessions, and 2 afternoon sessions. DEC credits (5.25 total) are being offered for the first three sessions on February 2nd.
In addition to the live webinars, attendees will receive access to a conference webpage, which will contain vendor content, and additional educational materials relevant to each session.
Early registration price (available through January 26th) is $85 for LOFP and ENYHCP enrollees, and $95 for unenrolled farms. Prices will increase by $10 following the 26th. Please note that each attendee must sign up with their own email address in order to access the conference page, attend the live webinars, and receive DEC recertification credits. This will provide access to all 3 conference days. We are not offering a price for 1-2 days. Still need to re-enroll for LOF? Enroll online today!
