Agricultural Forum set for January in Northampton

Farmers and other horticulturalists from across Long Island will meet in January to discuss the latest issues facing the agricultural industry here.

Those in attendance at the 30th annual Long Island Agricultural Forum will also discuss the latest environmental restrictions and guidelines — while accruing “important pesticide recertification credits,” said officials with the Long Island Farm Bureau, which is hosting the event.

New technology, changes in farmland preservation programs and solid waste management will also be topics of interest for local those in attendance.

The forum is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, Jan. 13 and 14, at Suffolk County Community College’s Eastern Campus in Northampton.

Those looking to attend should register before Jan. 4, otherwise the $30 registration fee will increase to $45 per person.
