The California Association of Resource Conservation Districts and K·Coe Isom have joined together to launch a state-wide electronic survey of farmers and ranchers on their participation in sustainability practices and their views on conservation initiatives in the state. The results of this survey will led to policies and programs the agriculture industry supports, along with improving the business environment for farming and ranching in California.
“We encourage farmers and ranchers to take a few minutes to help us get a comprehensive view of agricultural operations across the state,” states Karen Burh, executive director of the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts. “As a leader in conservation efforts across the state, we are interested in learning how RCDs can better serve the agricultural community.”
The survey is 40 questions and takes about 15 minutes to complete. Farm and ranch owners, managers and operators are encouraged to take the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CAagriculture.
“The goal of this project is to share the viewpoint of farmers and ranchers from across the state,” according to Tracy Schohr, K·Coe Isom outreach specialist. “There are a lot of speculations as to what is done at the farm level for conservation and programs that are important to the agriculture community. This survey will provide clarity for the public and policy leaders regarding the stewardship of our state’s farmers and ranchers.”
Be part of the solution to enhance the image of agriculture in California, while supporting policies and programs that are important to California’s farmers and ranchers. <
