How farmers perceive soil testing survey! September 14, 2012

Dear growers:

Please help a graduate student to get anonymous data on how you perceive the process of soil testing! I took it and is very straightforward!

Title of the project: Perceived Soil Testing Attributes and Their Differing Effects on Adoption Between Small and Large Farmers

“Corey Hanlon is a graduate student at the University of Florida who is conducting research on how farmers perceive soil testing. The method is a 10-minute, anonymous online survey. The sample of respondents that Corey is searching for includes any farmers that produce horticultural goods, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, nursery stock, sod, trees and more. Corey’s goal is to reach 200 respondents, and is nearly halfway there.

Are you able to help her out?”

The survey is completely anonymous and there will be no way for any response to be associated with any particular respondent, especially because I will never ask for a farmer’s name or any contact information. If you have any further questions about the survey, I can be reached at selah789@ufl.edu, or UF’s IRB can be reached at irb2@ufl.edu (Reference IRB protocol # 2012-U-0803).

Thanks for helping a UF graduate student!
