Title:  The Iowa Farm and Rural Life Poll

Location:  Iowa State Campus

Time Period:  1982-present

Research Team:  J. Arbuckle

Project Description:  The Iowa Farm and Rural Life Poll (IFRLP) is an annual panel survey of Iowa farmers. The IFRLP project is a year-round effort to help stakeholders who work with farmers to develop and answer research questions and generate information that improves the effectiveness of their programs and policies. I work closely with ISU faculty from diverse departments (e.g., Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, Agronomy, Entomology, Natural Resource Ecology and Management) and with major stakeholders (e.g., Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Iowa Department of Natural Resources) to help them identify and articulate research questions focused on the major challenges and issues that they face.
