Deadline Extended for San Diego Growers’ Needs Assessment Survey

  • Jul 12, 2018

The deadline to complete the UCCE San Diego County Office growers’ needs assessment survey has been extended to July 31. San Diego County California avocado growers are encouraged to complete the survey to ensure their interests are addressed.

The purpose of the survey is to help UCCE learn about the needs, concerns and interests of commercial farm business owners, operators and individuals. Survey responses will remain confidential and be used to develop local agricultural policies and guide the planning and delivery of programs that will help strengthen agricultural businesses, sustain the local agricultural economy and foster food security.

UCCE notes the benefits of this project include:

  • Gaining a snapshot of types, changes, challenges, motivations and benefits of farming in San Diego County
  • Developing a clearer understanding of gaps in communication
  • Providing UCCE, schools and other educational and outreach organizations with a resource that will help them develop programs that best meet the needs of farmers in San Diego County

The online survey will take just 10 – 30 minutes to complete. Participants who complete the survey will have the option to receive a $25 VISA® voucher and enter a drawing for additional gifts, including a $500 VISA® voucher.

For complete information about the survey, visit the project website or contact Ramiro Lobo, UCCE Advisor, at or Jan Gonzales, UCCE Project Coordinator, at

The UCCE growers' needs assessment survey is to help UCCE develop a clear picture of the current agricultural industry situation in San Diego County in order to develop programs and strategies to help support the industry.
