How do your blueberries get pollinated? What information would help you better manage pollination on your farm?

UF researchers are looking for your input!

As part of a USDA-funded project to improve blueberry pollination, a research team including the University of Florida is trying to gain a better understanding of how blueberry growers get their fields pollinated. We are hoping to better understand current pollination practices, satisfaction with pollination, barriers to successful pollination, and the economics of blueberry pollination.


Whether you have 1 acre or 1000 acres, we are looking for your input! Please fill out this short 10-15 min, confidential, anonymous survey linked here: https://wsu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0PqEOz2ETXI43Ns. This survey is based at Washington State University as they helped put the survey online, but it has been designed for Florida growers.


As a small token of our appreciation, growers completing the survey will be entered in a raffle for one of twelve $50 gift certificates. We will announce the winners at the end of the year once the survey is completed.

If you have questions or concerns about your rights as a research participant, please contact the Washington State University Human Research Protection Program office at (509) 335-7646 or [email protected]. For any specific questions about the online survey or difficulties in access, please contact Suzette Galinato at [email protected] or (509) 335-1408.
