ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) New York state is getting more than $900,000 in federal funding to support nearly a dozen research projects, most of which are being conducted at Cornell University.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that the funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will go to 11 research projects, including eight at the Ivy League school in Ithaca.

Two of the other projects are being conducted by Cornell Cooperative Extension in Essex and Suffolk counties, while the third is being done by the state office of the American Farmland Trust in Saratoga Springs.

The funding includes more than $150,000 to support New York's wine and grape industry.
