Welcome

Organic is one of the most dynamic and fast-growing segments of the U.S. agricultural market and is an increasingly important engine of growth for New York's farmers, large and small. Cornell supports organic agriculture and dairy through numerous research and extension activities.

The information on this website is a valuable resource for farmers and gardeners, agricultural educators, governmental agency representatives, university faculty and extension educators, and all others interested in organic production systems.

Visit the producers and gardeners resources pages for specific production strategies for everything from squash to seed corn.
