If you currently use cover crops, this is your chance to report what works and what doesn't work.
If you don't use cover crops, this is your chance to tell us why not and help us understand where more scientific evidence is needed to encourage their adoption.
We are seeking farmer input on cover crops as a conservation option on U.S. farms. This survey will take 10 minutes or less and is for both farmers who use cover crops and farmers who do not use cover crops.
Just a few minutes of your time will help improve cover crop programs and efforts to increase access to information and assistance.
Your answers will remain completely anonymous
For 10 minutes or less, you could receive a $100 gift card. After completing the survey, you will have the opportunity to register for two $100 gift card drawings. The gift cards have been graciously provided by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF). Gift card registration takes place at a separate website to ensure your responses to this survey remain completely anonymous. You will be automatically directed to the gift card registration site upon completion of this survey.
Please respond by January 31, 2014 to be eligible for the gift card drawing.
This survey is sponsored by the USDA Sustainable Research and Education (SARE) program and carried out by the Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC).
