Research, outreach and engagement to understand Colorado agricultural labor and find solutions.
The Colorado Agricultural Labor Survey for Employers gathered responses from Nov 1, 2020 – Jan 31, 2021. 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.
- 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.
