Orchard IPM Surveys
What pest management techniques work for you and other farmers?
The purpose of this survey is to serve as a communication forum - a way to let your voice be heard about which pest management practices work and what the biggest challenges are, as well as to hear what other growers and pest management professionals think about these subjects.
Oriental fruit moth bores into the center of stonefruit. The caterpillar is white or pink with a brown head.
As a form of 'citizen science', these questions will enable you to record your experiences each year, allowing the gathered information to grow into a decision-making and prediction tool that will help growers anticipate pest problems and provide effective solutions. In addition to anonymous results available immediately upon submission of your survey responses, broader reports on changes over time will be posted to the website as information becomes available.
There are three surveys currently available for the 2013 growing season. Click on the link to take the survey, or click 'Responses' to see an anonymous summary of all currently submitted answers.

NOTE: Survey results are not available until at least one person has taken the survey. If the results link appears as an Adobe Forms Central page saying ‘Your form has no responses," it is because no entries have been submitted yet.
