LSU AgCenter economist Kurt Guidry is conducting a survey to find out how the AgCenter can better serve industry stakeholders through research and extension programs.

Guidry is gathering information from soybean farmers, crop consultants and personnel from the agricultural industry.

The survey responses will be used as the AgCenter tailors its programs to better meet changing needs of the industry, Guidry said. The survey can be taken online at any time through Nov. 30. It can also be taken at several agriculture-related events around Louisiana and will be mailed to a random sample of producers and crop consultants, Guidry said.

Respondents will be asked to identify what issues are most important to them and what sources they consult for agriculture information. Their responses will help the AgCenter determine more efficient ways to reach stakeholders with research findings and educational programs, Guidry said. "

The survey project is being funded in part by the Louisiana Soybean and Feed Grain Research and Promotion Board to ensure that the board is supporting activities with the greatest positive impact," Guidry said.
