Texas sorghum producers are urged to take part in a survey that will help Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service economists compile data on the economic losses caused by sugarcane aphids statewide.
The survey is available at http://bit.ly/scasurvey.
Producer participation is voluntary and anonymous.
The study is supported by the Texas Sorghum Producers Association.
“The purpose of this research is to estimate the economic impact of the sugarcane aphid outbreak on Texas’ sorghum industry and the economy,” said Dr. Samuel Zapata, AgriLife Extension economist in Weslaco.
Through the application of science-based knowledge, AgriLife Extension creates high-quality, relevant continuing education that encourages lasting and effective change.
