The University of Washington, Washington State University and the Washington State Department of Agriculture have partnered to create a single, comprehensive, end-of-season survey to capture the impacts COVID-19 has had on Washington agriculture.
All farm owners and operators throughout Washington who are 18 years or older are invited to participate.
This end-of-season survey builds on earlier surveys and is a unique look back across the entire season, specifically focusing on Washington agriculture. The information gathered will be used for research, development of extension programs and agricultural sector support for Washington. Responses will help guide recovery from the current crisis and enhance Washington agriculture’s resilience to future challenges.
The survey, which takes 20–30 minutes to complete, is open until Dec. 31 and can be accessed on a computer or smartphone.
Participants can complete the survey without providing contact information. There’s also an option to enter a drawing for one of six $50 online gift cards.
