Questions About the New NYS Farm Labor Laws? Chat with an Expert! Morrisville

December 19, 2019


Specialists will be on hand to field questions regarding the new laws. They are here to help producers understand the impact of new laws.  NYSDOL will provide information on compliance with the Farm Laborers Fair Labor Practices Act.  DOL will review how the changes will impact employer scheduling, payment of wages and recordkeeping. Updated materials will be available.

Additionally,  we will have the opportunity to review a new tool developed by Dr. Jenny Ifft from Cornell's Dyson School that will help producers calculate overtime costs.  Remember, farm labor laws will be changing as of January 1, 2020, so don't get left in the dark!  This is a program for all producers who have employees on their payroll.

Entomologists Seek Safer Pest Management Tech for NYS

Specialty crop entomologists from Cornell AgriTech and the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program (NYSIPM) will use a three-year, $450,000 grant from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets to evaluate alternatives for controlling insect pests that threaten the state's $1.4 billion specialty crop industry.

The scientists will explore alternatives to neonicotinoids and chlorpyrifos, which have been shown to harm the environment - as well as pollinators and other beneficial insects - by mounting evidence, including a 2020 analysis of neonicotinoid use in New York by Cornell's Dyce Lab for Honeybee Studies.
