University of California Cooperative Extension is seeking input from California growers of field crops, consultants and allied industry on how the division should approach research and Extension efforts.

“Your input will highlight the most important issues facing field crop production in California and help us set priorities for future programming,” according to a news release.

As a result, UCCE has developed an online questionnaire to gather information about concerns, challenges and preferences from the industry. The survey, which takes 15-20 minutes, can be completed from a smartphone or computer. All responses are anonymous and will be kept confidential.

The deadline to complete the questionnaire is Aug. 21.

If you have questions, please contact the project team at fieldcrops@ucdavis.edu (Nick Clark, Michelle Leinfelder-Miles, Mark Lundy, Bruce Linquist, Whitney Brim-DeForest, Sarah Light, Vikram Koundinya, Bob Hutmacher, Cameron Pittelkow and Jessie Kanter).
