Please share your experiences in this short questionnaire!

I am currently in my last year of agricultural studies, and am working with the Organic Research Centre on my MSc thesis project Integrating organic farmers' perception and local knowledge of soil structure and organic matter assessment with scientific knowledge for sustainable land use and management.

As a result, recommendations for farmers, describing reliable, practical and easily applicable soil assessment methods will be developed. Discussion groups, workshops and field labs with demonstrations will also be part of this project.

Could you please tell us about your experience with soil structure and organic matter assessment through this short questionnaire? www.surveymonkey.com/s/soilassessment

(Please note : once you have started the survey link, you will not be able to come back to it at a later time, but it should only take about 10 minutes to answer the questions).

If you’re interested in getting involved further, or participating and sharing your experiences with other farmers and growers in our workshops and field labs, please leave us your email address at the end of this questionnaire.

THANK YOU very much!
Coline Capron (ORC intern)
