Hawai`i farmers, ranchers and producers are encouraged to participate in a Seeds of Wellbeing Survey (SOW) being conducted by the UH-College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) to gather information on the stress and stressors in the agricultural community.

The survey will contribute to greater understanding of Hawai’i agricultural producers’ wellbeing needs. The survey takes takes between 10 – 15 minutes and is available in English, Chuukese, Chinese, Ilokano, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese.
