WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Census of Agriculture is the only complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. The information produced by the Census of Agriculture guides Congress, agribusiness, policymakers, researchers, local governments, and many others on the creation and funding of agricultural programs and services – decisions that can directly impact your local operations and the future of the agriculture industry for years to come.
New farmers or existing farmers who have not participated in a prior Census of Agriculture still have time to sign up to be counted through the end of June
. The survey takes less than a minute – and will ensure that you receive a Census form that can be filled out in paper form or online.
