Each year Kentucky’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program must update its educational and research priorities for the coming year. Now is your opportunity to help determine which pest, pesticide and pest management related problems, issues, and educational efforts are the most important to Kentucky.
The survey is very short (3 questions) and should take 10 minutes or less to complete. You will be asked to rank 11 priorities from 1 to 11, with 1 being the most important and 11 the least important. You will also be able to suggest a priority. The survey responses are anonymous. No information about you or information from your computer will be collected. The rankings of the priorities are used to plan future IPM trainings and projects, and they will also be used to determine the IPM priorities of the Southern Region and, finally, to help set national priorities. The survey will be available until February 1. After March 15, survey results will be reported on the Kentucky IPM website.
If you are a Kentucky producer; an agriculture business person; work in agriculture-related government, university, or educational job; or consider yourself a stakeholder in Kentucky agriculture, please take the IPM Priorities survey now.
