Grower Survey on On-Farm Food Safety and Conservation Practices
Message from Dr. Daniel Weller, University of Rochester
I hope all is going well. A group of researchers at Cornell University, the University of California, and the University of Rochester are working on a project to understand and model trade-offs between food safety and conservation practices used on fresh produce farms.
The aim of the project is to help farmers develop management plans that minimize costs and optimize food safety and conservation outcomes.
To ensure our models accurately reflect grower practices, costs, and needs, we are conducting a survey among fruit and vegetable growers in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast. If you are a grower in those areas, and are willing to spend 20 to 30 minutes to take our survey, we would really appreciate your insights.
The survey is 100% anonymous and the first 300 participants will receive a $15 e-gift card. If you are interested in participating please go to https://bit.ly/2t6EQsO or use the QR code below.
Sincerely and Thanks,
