Subject:  Final reminder about survey of fruit growers to assess bird damage to fruit crops 

Our USDA-sponsored survey focused bird damage to fruit crops will conclude later this month. We are writing one last time to encourage you to complete the questionnaire if you grew wine grapes, cherries, blueberries, or honey crisp apples in 2011.

Your response will only take a few minutes and is important in ensuring that the data are representative of all growers. Your input is important, even if you did not experience any bird damage to your fruit last year. Combined with field research, this survey will provide information that leads to better management of animal damage to fruit crops.

To access the questionnaire, please use the following URL:

Your contact information will not be released to the researchers. You can be assured that all the information you provide will be kept confidential and the information you provide will never be associated with your name or business.

If you have any questions about using the web-based form or submitting your completed questionnaire, please do not hesitate to contact staff at the Survey Research Institute at 607-255-3786 or 

Thank you very much.
