USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Looking for your opinion on cover crops.

If you currently use cover crops, this is your chance to report what works and doesn't work. If you don't use cover crops, tell us why not and help us understand where more scientific evidence is needed to encourage their adoption.

We are seeking farmer input on cover crops as a conservation option on U.S. farms. This survey will take 10 minutes or less and is for both farmers who use cover crops and farmers who do not use cover crops in their operations. Just a few minutes of your time will help improve cover crop programs and efforts to increase access to information and technical assistance. Your answers will remain completely anonymous

For 10 minutes or less, you could receive a $100 gift card. After completing the survey, you will have the opportunity to register for two $100 gift card drawings. Gift card registration takes place at a separate website to ensure that your responses to this survey remain completely anonymous.

Please respond by Jan. 31, 2014, to be eligible for the gift card drawing.

This survey is sponsored by the USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program and carried out by the Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC).
