Horticulture seminar: Case studies in forest farming

Monday, September 22, 2014 at 12:20pm to 1:10pm

Plant Science Building, 404

Dr. Kenneth Mudge, Associate Professor, Horticulture Section, School of Integrative Plant Science, Cornell University

Also available via Polycom to A134 Barton Hall in Geneva.

Forest farming is an agroforestry practice that involves production of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) beneath the canopy of an existing forest, while maintaining or enhancing forest health through productive conservation. Several forest farmers will be featured who cultivate a variety of NTFPs (mushrooms, medicinals, ornamentals) using three different approaches to income generation including selling the organ of medicinal interest (rhizome, etc.), propagating planting stock for others to grow on, or by selling “medicinal” plants as ornamentals.
