PLEASE consider spending a couple of minutes of your time for this. Ag research only works when its beneficiaries, i.e., farmers, participate. –Thanks, Terry

Jen Miller, a grad student at UVM, is doing a survey examining crop insurance on diversified fruit and vegetable farms as a risk management tool. She is looking for your honest feedback.

This goals of this project are to examine:

– Methods vegetable and fruit growers are using to manage production risk

– Vegetable and fruit farmers’ experience with, and perception of crop insurance policies

– How well crop insurance programs serve vegetable and fruit growers

Responses are being collected from vegetable and fruits farmers in the Northeast.
