Needs Assessment and Program Development

The University of California Cooperative Extension and Western Extension Center for Risk Management Education are conducting a survey to identify challenges impacting the viability of Agricultural operations run by Hispanic or Latino/a farmers in California.  

The survey should take about 30-40  minutes to complete. The results from this survey will help us understand your current practices and needs to develop more relevant and culturally appropriate information, risk management tools, and increase access to regional and federal resources that better support Latino/a farmers and ranchers. Your participation is voluntary. We will provide a $25 gift card in appreciation for your valuable time.  

Your answers will be kept confidential and the results will be shared in an aggregate form via reports, peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations. The final results will be made available free of charge in an electronic format at our website once the data has been compiled and analyzed.
