Young farmers wanted to complete state ag survey

ANNAPOLIS — The Maryland Young Farmers Advisory Board is conducting a survey of Maryland Young Farmers. The survey aims to help the Maryland Department of Agriculture, Maryland Agricultural Commission, commodity groups and agri-businesses better understand how to better assist young farmers.

The survey should be completed by individuals 45 years old and younger who are affiliated with agriculture in Maryland. The online survey can be completed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MdYoungFarmer and will be available until January 4, 2015.
