Dear Growers,

Your help is needed to combat spotted wing drosophila! If you grow berries or cherries, please complete this 25-30 minute survey. This survey is important. We will use the information collected to:

  • Use grant money wisely and focus the efforts of our USDA NIFA funded national project on the areas of greatest need.
  • Provide support for additional resources to manage SWD such as new insecticides or biological controls.
  • Help us evaluate if our efforts are successful.

The survey is available in English and Spanish and can be printed and completed offline. The deadline for the survey is December 1, 2017. Please contact Hannah Burrack if you have questions about the survey.
