Last Chance to Sign Up for Maple Workshops!
With support from the Northern NY Agricultural Development Program, a series of workshops in September and October will highlight research on maple sap production yields. Speakers will present evaluation of the use of different spouts and droplines. Workshop leader Northern New York Maple Specialist Michael Farrell says, “These workshops offer maple producers the opportunity to learn about the developments and experimentation in recent years to determine what type of spout will produce the greatest amount of sap.” Farrell is the director of Cornell University’s Maple Syrup Research & Extension Field Station at Lake Placid, NY.
Workshop participants will come away with useful guidelines for how to improve sap yields and profitability through cost effective spout and dropline replacement techniques.
Workshops will be held September 20, September 21, October 1, October 3, and October 5.
Pre-registration for the maple workshops is required. Pre-registration closes for the September 20 and September 21 workshops today so sign up now!
