National Strawberry Industry Survey

The National Strawberry Sustainability Initiative (NSSI) is a collaboration among 13 universities conducting research and extension programs to advance sustainable strawberry production. It is supported by a USDA Specialty Crop Research Initiative planning grant and administered by the Division of Agriculture’s Center for Agricultural and Rural Sustainability at the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture. University of Florida is a collaborating institution.

NSSI is current seeking input from stakeholders in a nationwide survey of strawberry stakeholders such as growers, managers, nursery operators, advisors and extension educators. The survey is available online until March 1, 2017 at: http://uark.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_86ZlHBF5azgrt9r. The perspective of Extension specialists and agents is thus far under-represented in the survey and we would greatly appreciate the participation of these groups.

The results of the survey will be used to guide the development of research, outreach and education programs aimed at increasing sustainable production and supply of strawberries to consumers.

Any questions about the survey or project can be addressed to Heather Friedrich and heatherf@uark.edu.
