2009-2010 Turning Point™ Audience Participation Survey

Turning Point™ audience response system was used to survey participants of the Spanish language pesticide license recertification sessions conducted during several meetings during the winter of 2009-2010. The survey collected data on knowledge of AZM and other insecticide use, use of beneficial insects in IPM and pesticide safety by the session participants and was compared to similar data gathered in 2008-2009 from a similar meeting venue. The results of this survey can be viewed online here or you can download a pdf of the report.
