Grower Survey to Assess Herbicide Drift in North Central U.S.
Indiana Ag Connection - 04/08/2021

Researchers at Ohio State have been surveying specialty crop growers about drift damage in the hope of gathering a more realistic understanding of the extent of pesticide drift in specialty crops. Since many specialty crop growers don't report drift to state agencies, the scale of the problem among specialty crop growers is relatively unknown. The research team will use this information to inform policy, research, and education.

If you would like to participate, the survey is open until April 11:

This is a reminder to participate in the current herbicide drift damage survey. The study seeks to document the frequency, severity, management, and economic impact of drift damage among specialty crop growers in the North Central U.S.

If you haven't already done so, please take the time right now to complete this survey at go.osu.edu/drift23.

The survey should take 5-20 minutes depending on your personal experience with herbicide drift. Results will help document needs for related research, education, or policy review around herbicide drift and drift management. More information at go.osu.edu/ipm-drift.
