WASHINGTON — Farmers who plant cover crops, used to plant cover crops, or have never tried cover crops are all encouraged to take this survey:

Thank you for choosing to share your perspective on cover crops.

The number of survey questions you will be asked depends on your farm(s), but you can expect the survey to take five to 10 minutes in most cases, or slightly longer for somebody who is growing a wide variety of crops and using cover crops in various ways.

Your opinions will help guide policy, research, and education on cover crops nationwide. Please take a few minutes and share your thoughts by completing the survey.

See the results of the previous four years of the survey.

The survey is being conducted by the Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC), USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program (SARE), and the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA), with help from Penton Media through their Corn and Soybean Digest publication.

If you have issues with this survey or questions, please direct them to Chad Watts at the Conservation Technology Information Center at (765) 494-9555 or via email at watts@ctic.org.
