The Sustainable Spotted Wing Drosophila (SWD) Management for US Fruit Crops project, funded by NIFA, needs your help. This five-year project is developing national research and extension approaches to minimize the impacts of SWD. They include:
- new management tactics and programs
- expanded pesticide registrations for SWD
- information and training on SWD for growers, extension agents, and others
In order to achieve this and ensure that the research and extension efforts match the needs of growers, the project is collecting information on the impacts of SWD on berry and small fruit growers' farms, your current management practices and preferences, and your needs for better management of SWD.
Participation in the survey is voluntary. The survey doesn't collect personally identifying information and the data will only be analyzed and reported in aggregate form. Please help us help you by providing your perspectives on SWD in the survey.
