The purpose of this project was developing an advocacy program for hail cannons use in agricultural practices. The project was initiated to help farmers promote hail cannon usage within communities, so the farmer may protect their crops from hail damage. In order to capture a wide array of opinions, farmers throughout Kings, Tulare and Fresno counties completed a questionnaire to give background on current problems and statistics regarding hail cannons. An advocacy strategy was given to provide guidance for farmers to promote hail cannons. By utilizing the hail cannon advocacy strategy, farmers should notice their communities are more accepting of hail cannon use and be able to continue using hail cannons in the future.
