Tractor Fuel Consumption/Cost Research Study

The Association is working with Cal Poly researchers to review and examine maintenance and repair costs, as well as fuel efficiency for tractors.  Agribusiness professors Drs. Michael McCullough and Lynn Hamilton have developed a brief (10 minute) questionnaire regarding operating and maintenance time and rates for agricultural tractors. The information will supplement data collected from tractor service providers in California and tractor technical specifications obtained from the University of Nebraska Tractor Test Lab. No personal or identifying questions are asked and all responses collected are anonymous.  We would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to provide information for your tractors.
