Growers Encouraged to Complete San Diego County Crop Report Questionnaire
California avocado growers located in San Diego County are encouraged to complete the 2017 Crop Report Questionnaire. The data from this questionnaire is utilized in the Crop Statistics and Annual Report for San Diego County drafted by the Agricultural Commissioner’s Office. The questionnaire is the sole source of data for some commodities and thus the office asks that growers complete the form to ensure the Annual County Crop Report is informative and accurate.
All data from the questionnaire remains confidential and will be used solely for the Crop Report.
The data helps determine new and emerging crop trends, the top 10 crops grown in the county, the overall value of agriculture to the county and a statewide ranking in production of similar crops.
Data from the report helps elected officials make policy decisions, determines how much financial assistance is needed during disaster declarations, is used by lending institutions and government agencies to make farm loan decisions and educates the public about the importance of agriculture to San Diego County’s economy and environment.
The deadline for completing the questionnaire is February 28, 2018. If you did not receive a questionnaire in the mail, visit www.sdcawm.org to download a copy. Email your completed questionnaire to Jennifer Alipo at Jennifer.Alipo@sdcounty.ca.gov or fax it to 858.467.9697.
