Wheat Initiative Growers Survey

Posted on Dec 10 By: Jeremy Boychyn, Agronomy Research Extension Specialist

As part of the Wheat Initiative, an international initiative that aims to improve wheat productivity, quality, and sustainable production, the Wheat Agronomy Expert Working Group is working to understand how growers prefer to receive extension information. Dr. Sheri Strydhorst (AF), along with other agronomic researchers around the globe, have developed a grower survey to help them better understand grower perspectives when it comes to agronomic information sourcing on their farm.

Strydhorst shared the following statement along with the survey link. “We are trying to better understand how knowledge mobilization and technology transfer tools can be adapted to meet regional needs in a digital world. The first step is to conduct a GROWER survey of what knowledge transfer tools are working in different jurisdictions.  Under the leadership of wheat agronomists from the USA, Canada and Australia, the team has prepared a survey to determine the most trusted sources of agronomic information and how growers like to receive extension information. We are trying to help growers determine credible vs. non-credible agronomic information sources.”

The survey takes only 5-10 minutes to complete and it will stay open until December 31, 2019. The survey link can be found below.
Results from this survey will be used to structure the development of credible wheat agronomic extension information tools.

Below is the press release provided by The Wheat Initiative along with the grower survey link.
