Oregon State University’s Mid-Columbia Agricultural Research and Extension Center staff is distributing a survey about integrated pest management mating disruption use in specialty crops. Anyone who has been involved in using, recommending or manufacturing pheromone mating disruption technologies is invited to participate in the survey. 

Administered through the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and is targeted toward commercial growers, crop consultants, manufacturers and distributors, extension educators, independent consultants and other interested parties in the United States. 

Researchers want to understand more about participants’ roles in specialty crop production and assess their opinions about mating disruption technologies, with the goal of better implementation of mating disruption in specialty crops. 

To complete the survey, go to: uwmadison.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5b6OuywtP9CRnoO.
