My name is Cara Sherman, and I am an MS student at the University at Albany in the Biodiversity, Conservation, and Policy program. I am writing my thesis on the prospects of using biochar as a soil amendment on farms in New York State. I have created the following survey to get your input on this topic as a farmer in New York.
The survey should take you no longer than 15-20 minutes. Most of the questions are multiple choice, with some requiring a few sentences for clarification. The survey will be anonymous, and the results will only be used in my thesis. You will be contacted only once to take the initial survey; there will be no follow up surveys or interviews in the future. Unfortunately, no compensation can be provided, so your response is greatly appreciated!
Here is the survey link:
