From  Dr. Rod Rejesus, Department of Agricultural & Resource Economics at North Carolina State University:

Farmers: we are reaching out to you and asking that you participate in an on-line survey. The survey is part of a study titled “Policies to Develop Perennial Grass-based Advanced Biofuel Supply Chains in the Southeast U.S.” from the Department of Agricultural & Resource Economics at North Carolina State University and funded by the USDA. Your responses to this survey will help us analyze the factors that influence your interest in growing perennial grasses, specifically, Giant Miscanthus.

If you agree to take part in this study, you will be asked to complete a survey about your general farming practices, your opinions about contractual preferences for Giant Miscanthus, risk preferences, and a few demographics. The survey will take you approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Your participation in the survey is completely voluntary. If you decide to participate in this research survey, you may withdraw at any time. To help protect your confidentiality, the survey will not contain information that will personally identify you.

This research has been reviewed and approved by Mississippi State University –Institutional Review Board. Should you have any comments or questions, please  contact Rod Rejesus at 919-513-4605 or by email.

Click here to complete the survey.

 
Thank you very much for your time. Feedback from our farmers is very important to us.
