The project is interested in assessing farmer awareness of good agricultural practices (GAPs) for production of safe food. Participation in the survey includes a $15 certificate to attend one of the University of Illinois Extension GAPS workshops (the face-to-face opportunities have passed, but there are two webinar classes scheduled; one in April and the other in June ; April 7, 14, 21, 28 - https://webs.extension.uiuc.edu/registration/?RegistrationID=9624 and June 2, 9, 16, 23- https://webs.extension.uiuc.edu/registration/?RegistrationID=9627)
