April 11, 2019 – -The California Air Resources Board (CARB), with the support of the California agricultural community, has extended the deadline for participation in the 2019 agricultural equipment survey. The survey has been extended until May 15, 2019.
CARB contracted with CalPoly San Luis Obispo to handle and completely anonymize all survey data, which includes removal of all identifying information. CalPoly is administering a web-based survey and offering an identical paper survey available for download or from your industry representative. The online survey may be completed on a computer or phone in just a few minutes. The paper survey should be returned to your local farm bureau or representative.
The 2019 agricultural survey, similar to one from 2008, covers all mobile agricultural equipment, including tractors, combines, balers, agricultural use ATVs and forklifts, and many more. The survey is intended for the agricultural sector, including producers in the field, custom operators, and first processing facilities, and covers equipment using any type of fuel or electricity, of any horsepower.
Results from the previous survey helped determine allocations for millions of dollars in equipment turnover programs across California, from federal and air district incentive programs.
