Research - Where Do You Go?

We've just about wrapped up production of our mid-September issue on Young Plants. Here's the cover, by the way. I think it's awesome, by our artist Patrick Brickman.

So in this issue, we include a seven-page live inputs directory. We keep mulling around the idea of putting this type of company and product search online, but it hasn't quite happened yet. Do you still use printed directories when searching for a product or provider, or do you just use Google? Or something else?

We recently conducted a survey of growers asking about Web usage. Maybe some of you even received it. Anyway, the results say that growers use the Internet for product searches. Should our directory be online?
