Researchers Launch Survey on Cover Crops to Expand Use and Policy Incentive Programs
University researchers and the Western Cover Crops Council are conducting a survey of western farmers to improve understanding of cover crop use throughout the U.S. West. The survey results will provide valuable feedback on current use of cover crops in the west, future outreach and research needs to expand use, and inform federal cover crop incentive programs to better serve farmers.
Western farmers are asked to take this brief survey to share their perspectives on cover crops—whether they currently use them, have planted them in the past, or have never planted them. This survey research is being conducted by partners at the University of Idaho, Oregon State University, and Boise State University with funding from a USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) grant. This brief, confidential survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Upon completion you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of 10, $50 Amazon gift cards.
