Farming is tough. From weather to equipment breakdowns, there are a lot of things that can cause stress. Researchers at Michigan State University Extension are conducting a research study to learn more about struggles Michigan farmers experience and what types of information may help. Our study involves the use of text messaging to provide information to help farmers manage farm stress.
This study will take place entirely online and via text message. That means that you do not have to go anywhere to participate, and you can participate at a time and location that makes the most sense to you. We are not asking for much of your time.
You will be compensated with a $40 Amazon gift card at the end of the study, and selected participants will receive $20 for an interview.
