shelterbelt survey

The Rural Development Institute is conducting a survey into the attitudes of farmers and the agricultural community about shelterbelts and their use.

In this survey we hope to gather information about shelterbelts,specifically practices and attitudes towards them. The results will be used to develop future information sharing tactics and strategies relating to promotion of the retention, planting and
use of shelterbelts by farmers in Manitoba.

The survey will close on Thursday August 7th. Completion of the survey will enter participants into a draw for a $150 gift certificate for Canadian Tire; the draw will be made on August 11th, 2014.
