Summary of results and actions: In a marked difference to the 2007 ARM survey, the 2008 version focused entirely on the ARM, with the exception of one open, non-ARM-related question, which addressed the crucial question of future investments, as follows:

Clustering the open-ended responses, we can report that nearly half of the respondents (44%) indicated breeding tools as the top priority for future investments. icon View full survey results
