Communication Methods Survey to Help Us Reach You
Both agriculture and methods of communication have been changing rapidly in the last few years. I wrote an article last year in the Bulletin to spark interest in how cropping extension specialists should be changing our communication methods. Extension is continually adapting to advancing technology as well as decreasing economic support. University extension specialists remain dedicated to developing high-quality educational materials and delivering them most efficiently and effectively. Your input is key to achieving this goal.
As specialists with the University of Illinois and the University of Wisconsin, we request your participation in a survey of the technology that soybean growers and agronomic consultants use to find and share production and marketing information. The survey, being conducted through the mail as well as online, is sponsored by the Illinois and Wisconsin Soybean Operating Boards through the soybean checkoff. The voluntary, anonymous survey should take you less than 10 minutes but will be extremely valuable to us. Please visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/soybeangrowercommunications to take part in helping us serve you better.
We thank you in advance for your input.--Vince M. Davis and Shawn P. Conley
