CLA REMINDER: Colorado Agricultural Community Drought Survey Closes March 30th
Colorado agricultural producer are invited to take a short survey about drought and its effects on their operations. Participation is part of a research study, protocol #15-0543, that will help researchers at University of Colorado, the State of Colorado, and the broader agricultural community better understand the water and drought challenges farmers and ranchers face.
Responses are completely anonymous and cannot be identified, and participation is voluntary so one may choose to stop taking the survey at any time. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
It is asked that respondents complete questions based on previous experience with drought. For the purposes of this survey, drought is defined as a prolonged period of abnormally low rainfall or snowpack, insufficient amounts of reservoir or river water, and high temperatures, which result in a shortage of water for a variety of uses.
Survey results will be published in peer reviewed journals and analysis will be shared with staff at the Colorado Water Conservation Board and the Colorado Department of Agriculture to help inform drought planning efforts.
