Introducing the next FarmShift study:
Changing Practices - An online syndicated survey of leading western
Canadian farmers.

November 26, 2013 (Winnipeg) – From the very crops that they grow through to their stewardship of the land they grow them on, we're seeing shifts in the practices of western Canadian farmers. What aspects of their production practices are farmers changing? This study provides the metrics. The syndicated Changing Practices probe addresses: crop choices, rotations, seeding, fertility/nutrition, crop protection (fungicides, herbicides, seed treatment), precision farming, harvesting, storage, marketing, and stewardship. For each of these areas, we find out if changes have been made or are planned, and what these changes entail.

The study will be an online survey of a sample of 400 western Canadian farmers with 2000+ acres. Survey design happens in December, data collection in January, and deliverables in February. There is early bird pricing until December 16 on both the Changing Practices probe and on any omnibus questions. Purchase the syndicated study, or omnibus questions, or both.
