Greenhouse operators needed for survey on ag plastic waste


October 6, 2020
By Cleanfarms

Cleanfarms is looking for greenhouse growers to participate in a market research study about current practices and attitudes toward disposal options for the agricultural plastic waste generated in their operations.

The survey results will help Cleanfarms determine how it can provide farmers with more opportunities to manage plastic waste in environmentally responsible ways. Part of Cleanfarms’ first-of-its-kind, in-depth study of Canadian agriculture entitled ‘Building a Zero-Plastic Waste Strategy for Agriculture”, this project is partly funded by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Canadian Agricultural Strategic Priorities Program (CASPP).

The research will take place this fall. The insights will inform the development of potential pilot projects throughout the agriculture sector to demonstrate best practices in ag waste management.

Greenhouse growers interested in participating in the survey can do so anonymously and confidentially by contacting Stratus, an independent research company at marinusvandijk@stratusresearch.com.
