Sorghum growing at the Purdue Agriculture Center for Research and Education (Purdue Agriculture)

Current tight margins in traditional field crop production (corn, soybeans and wheat) have resulted in many local producers beginning to explore alternative field crop opportunities to increase returns.  To help address this need, Purdue Extension Educators in southern Indiana have developed a survey on field crop diversification to determine interest and need among southern Indiana producers in diversifying cropping systems.  Results will be utilized in the development of resources, programming and services addressing production and marketing of new and/or specialty field crops.

All producers are invited and encouraged to take the survey.  It will be open through March 2018.

The survey is available online at .  Paper copies of the survey can be obtained at your local Extension office and will be distributed at local Extension events and programs in late-2017/early-2018. 

The survey is voluntary and all responses will be anonymous and confidential.
