Western Agricultural Industry
Survey - 2016

  In early 2016, the idea for the Agricultural Industry Survey originated from a similar effort administered by a group of Colorado Extension Specialists. Members of the Western Extension Committees (WEC) on Farm Management and Marketing, made up of Extension economists from 13 Western States, Guam, and the U.S. Pacific Islands then initiated a survey specific to agriculture in the west. The survey invitation was emailed to the WEC membership who distributed it through Extension contact channels.
  Below, please find the results of those efforts. We sincerely hope you find them helpful to your work with agricultural clientele across the west and elsewhere.
