The Pennsylvania Conservation Dialogue Initiative seeks the perspectives of Pennsylvania farmers to identify successful and underutilized programs funded through the conservation title of the Farm Bill. The initiative will use the survey results to guide future discussions with Pennsylvania farmers and agency representatives about how to maximize the environmental benefits from conservation efforts funded through the next Farm Bill.
You are being asked to participate in this survey because you are either (1) a farmer in Pennsylvania or (2) a representative of an agency/organization that works with Pennsylvania farmers on conservation practices funded through the Farm Bill.
To have the survey results reflect the views of all farmers, it is important that we hear from everyone who has the opportunity to complete this survey, not just those with strong opinions. For farmers, we ask that this survey be completed by the person in your household who makes most of the farm-related decisions and is at least 18 years old. This survey should take about 20 minutes to complete.
Your answers will be kept confidential and the information you give us will never be associated with your name. We release only statistical summaries where individual answers cannot be identified.
You can either complete this survey in person at the Pennsylvania Conservation Dialogue Initiative booth at Ag Progress Days, pick up a written copy of the survey at Ag Progress Days and return it by the end of Ag Progress Days at your convenience, or complete it online by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PA-SEI.
