On September 27 Elson Shields and Tony Testa of Cornell University visited the Farm Hub to share research findings on our ongoing nematode research trial with Teresa Rusnik of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Program.
The focus of the discussion was on the positive results from the trial’s first year: Nematodes have decreased the presence of soil-dwelling agricultural pests by over 30%. The presenters also provided attendees with affordable methods of rearing their own nematodes to combat soil-dwelling pests they may be experiencing.
We’re looking forward to sharing additional findings as the research trial continues. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
