As spotted wing drosophila (SWD) has become established throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, it has become increasingly important to understand the impacts this pest has had in different crops and regions. We have conducted grower-focused impact assessments for the last two years and this information has been used to develop research, extension, and education activities. The survey responses have also been used to support grant proposal to support future SWD activities.
We are now seeking to update our information for the 2014 growing season. If you are a fruit grower, marketer, gardener, extension agent/specialist, crop consultant, or have other interests in SWD, please complete the survey online at:http://swd.ces.ncsu.edu/2014/12/measuring-the-impacts-of-spotted-wing-drosophila-in-2014-your-help-needed/
We would really appreciate your input.
