Invitation to participate in UC Davis Survey on Nitrogen Management
Contra Costa RCD works with our partners to help bring the best available science and technology to you to help address resource concerns on your farm or ranch. Occasionally, we need your help and feedback too!
Jessica Rudnick is a PhD Student at UC Davis and is currently conducting a survey investigating nitrogen management approaches in different irrigated agricultural systems. She is interested in understanding growers' experiences with and opinions on nitrogen management policy and outreach programs. This survey offers the opportunity to voice YOUR needs and concerns around progressing nitrogen management policies and to give feedback that will influence future research and UC Cooperative Extension activities focused on how to most efficiently improve nitrogen management.
Surveys will be mailed to nearly 4,000 growers across the Central Valley, including the San Joaquin and Delta Water Quality Coalition Regions next week. We encourage you to participate and help Jessica, UC Davis, and UC Cooperative Extension with their research in order to better help and serve you.
Research confidentiality is of utmost importance. Survey results will be anonymous and reported as aggregate data only. Answers will not be associated with any personal information in any way. All participation is completely voluntary.
