Given the increasing competitiveness of farming and the necessity of keeping abreast
with the latest agricultural innovations, minority producers must have access to the
appropriate educational information and training opportunities to enhance the viability
of their small farm enterprises.
This year the extension personnel at Florida A&M University (FAMU) are initiating
a new study to gain an in-depth understanding of the barriers and risks minority farmers
encounter in farming. The data derived from this investigation will allow extension
personnel at FAMU to develop the appropriate educational opportunities through the
contribution of minority farmers in this study. Therefore, if you are interested in
volunteering for this study, click the links below.
If you plan on participating in this study, please return your signed IRB Informed
Consent form to Dr. Angela McKenzie-Jakes if you are a livestock producer and to Dr.
Gilbert Queeley if you are a crop producer by April 25, 2023.
