Research, outreach and engagement to understand Colorado agricultural labor and find solutions.
Research is underway to understand the Colorado situation of agricultural workforce from the employer perspective. If you are a farm, ranch or green industry employer, please click here to take our online survey before January 31, 2021. The Colorado Agricultural Labor Survey for Employers is 45 questions and we anticipate it will take 15 minutes or less. This is a comprehensive survey intended to answer key questions, create educational programs and resources, inform influencers and decision makers regarding the ag labor conditions in Colorado, and hopefully find creative solutions to current challenges. A survey of this type has not been done in Colorado for at least two decades. Please add your information to the data. Only one response per employer, please.
- According to CSU, the value chain of Colorado agriculture contributes nearly $40B to the state economy. Farms and ranches need a viable workforce.
- The 2020 Colorado Agricultural Labor Survey for Employers closes February 1, 2021 for responses. We will release preliminary finding in early 2021 with a full report later that year.
