Agriculture

CCE-Rensselaer works with producers - from beginning farmers to established specialized businesses - providing expert consulting and research-based resources that can help your farm compete in a global economy. Extension specialists approach your farm in a holistic way, as as system of biology, finance, engineering and human interactions, all operating with a limited set of assets. Strategic improvement plans are tailored to meet the goals of the business within the constraints of their resources. From buffalo to begonias, corn to organic carrots, teff to triticale, greenhouses to grass hay, links with Cornell and other universities are utilized to provide local information to grow local businesses.
