NCAT Launches National Survey of Attitudes about Crop Insurance
The 2014 Farm Bill greatly increased access to crop insurance for specialty crop, diversified, and organic growers, but so far only a small percentage of those who are eligible have taken advantage of these new opportunities. The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is conducting a survey of attitudes about crop insurance, in order to plan educational efforts and make recommendations to the USDA. Confidential and anonymous, the survey takes just 20-30 minutes (on any computer, smart phone, or other mobile device) and is open to anyone who is farming or ranching commercially in the United States. A $20 honorarium is offered to the initial group of respondents. (Honorarium funds are limited.) Please take the survey at www.ncat.org/cropinsurance and share the link with all who may be interested. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
