Researchers at UC Berkeley are trying to ascertain what motivates California farmers and ranchers to implement farming practices that improve soil health as well as what deters them.
UCCE advisors and specialists and field staff who work with farmers and ranchers are asked to take a few moments to fill out the survey being conducted by Alastair Iles, associate professor of environmental policy and societal change in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy & Management, and postdoctoral fellow Joanna Ory.
“The results may help enhance the way we extend knowledge to our clientele,” said VP Glenda Humiston. “Thank you for participating in this important research project.”
