The University of Maryland Extension (UME) is committed to providing quality services for members of our agricultural community. In order to help UME, an Agriculture Needs Assessment has been created to understand issues concerning Western and Northern Maryland agriculture, identify agricultural and educational needs, and to focus UME training and resources.

The survey has four main sections:

1) industry  priorities, concerns and viability

2) research and education needs

3) education and training preferences and

4) demographic and farm information. T

There is no personally-identifying information collected from the survey.
