Farmer Survey

Conducting a farmer survey is a valuable way for our company to gather essential information about its members, their needs, and their agricultural practices.

    • We create a structured questionnaire with clear and concise questions. We always ensure that the questions are relevant to the survey's objectives and that they are easy for farmers to understand.

  4. Pilot Testing:

    • Before launching the survey, we conduct a pilot test with a small group of farmers to identify any issues with the questionnaire and make necessary adjustments.

  9. Data Validation:

    • We verify the accuracy and reliability of the collected data through data validation and cross-checking.
