Register for the Cornell Statewide Frost Protection Webinar

Spring started earlier than usual in some parts of New York’s fruit production regions, and CCE is taking a proactive approach to get information on frost protection and its science out to NY fruit growers. There have been some advances in frost protection in recent years, along with promising ongoing research. We will be having a Cornell Statewide Frost Protection Webinar with several Cornell scientists and an invited speaker next week. Growers will have plenty of time to ask questions during this very informative webinar as apple trees continue advancing their bud phenology. 

  • Introductions Mike Basedow and Mario Miranda Sazo
  • Climate Monitoring of Apple Bud Development and Freeze Risk Jessica Spaccio, Climatologist, 
  • Department of Earth & Atmospheric Science (EAS), Northeast Regional Climate Center (NRCC), Cornell U. 
  • The Physiology of Frost Damage, and the Practical Challenges of Testing Mitigation Tools, Dr. Jason Londo, Cornell AgriTech 
  • Practical Tips for Using Promalin as A Frost Mitigation Tool, Dr. Terence Robinson, Cornell AgriTech Research on Sprayable Frost Protectants,  Dr. Brent Arnoldussen, University of Kentuck
