Santa Barbara Growers Encouraged to Participate in Water Management Survey
In response to the state’s water crisis and its impact on the California avocado industry, the Cachuma Resource Conservation District (RCD) is conducting an agricultural water management survey designed to gather the input of growers, managers and other individuals involved in irrigation management. Information gathered from the survey will remain confidential and will be used to help determine where funding is needed and to more effectively utilize technical support on behalf of the agricultural industry.
The online survey can be completed in approximately 20 minutes. California avocado growers in the Santa Barbara region are encouraged to complete this survey, which has the support of the Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and the UC Cooperative Extension.
The survey will close on October 31, 2016. All respondents will receive a $40 gift certificate that can be used toward purchasing irrigation efficiency supplies at local stores including All-Around Landscape, Aqua Flow and Cal-Coast Irrigation.
