San Diego Growers Encouraged to Complete Needs Assessment Survey
The UCCE San Diego County Office is conducting a growers’ needs assessment survey in collaboration with local partners, and seeks input from California avocado growers. The purpose of the 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.
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 and will address grower needs, concerns and interests. All answers are anonymous and will remain confidential. The results will be shared in aggregate form in reports, presentations and peer-reviewed publications.
San Diego County California avocado growers are encouraged to complete the survey to ensure their concerns and interests are addressed. Participants who complete the survey by June 22 will have the option to receive a $25 VISA® voucher and entering a drawing for additional gifts, including a $500 VISA® voucher.
