Grower Survey - Effective Extension Tools
Wheat Initiative - Agronomy Expert Working Group - GROWER SURVEY - Effective Extension Tools
PRIORITY 4 – IMPROVED KNOWLEDGE MOBILIZATION AND TRANSFER
Champions: Drew Lyon (Washington State University), Sheri Strydhorst (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry), and Kenton Porker (University of Adelaide)
GOAL 4.1 : Better understand how knowledge mobilization and transfer systems can be adapted to meet regional needs in a digital world.
ACTION: Conduct a GROWER survey of what knowledge transfer tools are working in different jurisdictions.
Survey Background: Extension or knowledge transfer is the process of driving practice change using a variety of educational methods and communication tools. In the United States, extension is within the Land Grant University system. In other countries it resides in state, provincial or federal government, private and non for profit farming system groups, crop advisors, or it may not be formally mandated by any group.
This survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and will stay open until December 31, 2019. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Your responses are very helpful in planning extension tools for wheat agronomic research.
