Mid-South Farmers Invited to Participate in Survey on Organic Agriculture

Winrock International and the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture are surveying farmers across the mid-South to gauge their interest in organic crop production. Researchers are seeking responses from active producers of row, fruit, vegetable, and field crops, including hay and forage, as well as livestock owners in Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. “The survey is being conducted to help design a three-year agricultural research project focusing on organic production issues in the Mid-South,” said Joseph Schafer of Winrock International. The survey takes five to 10 minutes to complete and will be open until December 31, 2020.
