Sustainable Spotted Wing Drosophila Management
for United States Fruit Crops

Grower Survey




Thank you for helping out by taking this survey. The purpose of the survey is to measure the effects of spotted wing drosophila (SWD) on fruit crop production. Results will be used to develop national research and extension projects to minimize future impacts of SWD. These may include:

  • Development of new management tactics and programs
  • Supporting new or expanded pesticide registrations for SWD
  • Development of educational material on SWD for growers, extension agents, and others

Participation in the survey is voluntary. The survey does not collect personally identifying information. Data may be summarized by state, crop, farm size, or farm type, but individual survey responses are confidential and will never be shared. Summaries of aggregated survey data will be publicly available on our project website, and will also be available by request.

Funding for this project, Sustainable Spotted Wing Drosophila Management for US Fruit Crops, was provided by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture Specialty Crops Research Initiative under Agreement No. 2015-51181-24252.

The survey should be completed by the person (age 18 or older) who is responsible for making pest management decisions for this growing operation.
