Dr. Juan Silva and Dr. Elizabeth Canales at Mississippi State University invite you to participate in a survey to examine farmers' adoption of food safety practices and third-party food safety audits. The objective is to identify the barriers to food safety adoption and the challenges faced by fruit, nuts, and vegetable growers of various operating sizes. Outputs from this research will help inform extension and other outreach educational efforts.

Any information you provide in this study is strictly confidential, and no identifying information will be collected. Only aggregated summaries from this study will be published. If you have any questions about this research, please feel free to contact Dr. Canales by calling (662) 325-2516, or via email at
