Cornell: Milk ‘sell-by’ dates may soon be more accurate

· August 28, 2018

Some new research coming out of Cornell University may take out some of the guesswork in if that gallon of milk in the fridge is still good. In fact, the researchers say the “sell-by” and “best-by” dates on milk cartons may soon become more meaningful and accurate. Cornell University food scientists have created a new […]

Ohio State, Cornell develop rapid nitrogen soil test

· July 23, 2018

One of the essential nutrients for vigorous crop production is nitrogen. Yet most routine tests done in commercial soil testing labs do not measure available nitrogen in the soil. Tests for nitrogen exist, but for a variety of reasons they cannot be done quickly and cost-effectively. As a result, farmers may be left guessing about […]

Northeast farmers get more growing season, battle heavy rains

· December 18, 2017

Farmers in the Northeast are adapting to longer growing seasons, but they may face spring-planting whiplash as they confront fields increasingly saturated with rain, according to a research paper published in the journal Climatic Change. “Climate change can easily intensify agricultural susceptibility, but also presents fresh, surprising opportunities,” said David Wolfe, professor of plant and […]

New York growers find trifecta of benefits from triticale

· July 6, 2017

After 15 years of research in New York state, scientists are finding a trifecta of benefits from the winter cover crop, triticale. A wheat-rye hybrid established in the late 1800s, researchers have found triticale can bring benefits to the field, the growers’ pockets, and dairy cows’ diets. “It’s like a ball of string,” explains Tom […]

IBM & Cornell improve food safety through genetic sequencing

· June 26, 2017

IBM Research and Cornell University are collaborating on a genetic sequencing dairy project to help reduce the chances that the global milk supply is impacted by safety breaches. With the onset of this dairy project, Cornell University has become the newest academic institution to join the Consortium for Sequencing the Food Supply Chain, a food […]
