SIPMC conducting survey on extension needs

If you work in the field, and you teach or use IPM, we need your help. We are trying to address important needs for extension in the southern region through a new survey. You can access the survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/93MLD5Q.

We are conducting this survey to prioritize a small number of Extension projects likely to have quick and positive IPM impacts in the Southern region. The Southern Region IPM Center has a relatively small pool of funds available, so we hope, with your help, to identify a “short list” of projects that will optimize delivery of positive impacts.

The survey is fairly short. You will be asked to describe one or two situations in which pest management could be improved if only the managers were better-informed or educated about a new method or tactic. We welcome responses about either agricultural or non-agricultural settings. Responses are anonymous, but the survey does include a few questions about your interest in IPM.

We expect to keep this survey open for approximately two weeks after which responses will be analyzed and results made public. The Southern IPM Center will use results to inform our own funding program. We and our partners may use the information in other ways, including prioritization of future projects.

At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to sign up for SIPMC’s mailing list, as well as subscribe to blogs, Twitter feed and Facebook. You must already have an account with Twitter to follow the Twitter feed.

If you have questions about the survey, please direct them to Jim VanKirk at jim@sripmc.org, 919-513-8179, or Rosemary Hallberg at rhallberg@sripmc.org or 919-513-8182.

Your participation in this survey will help us focus our priorities for our next RFA and fund projects that will help us generate big impacts.

If you know anyone that you think should take this survey, please forward the link to those people.
