Census of Agriculture Deadline Nears

The deadline to respond to the 2022 Census of Agriculture is next week.

USDA’s National Ag Statistics Service says farmers and ranchers must respond by February 6th online or through the mail.

NASS Administrator Hubert Hamer says, “By participating in the 2022 Census of Agriculture, producers show the value and importance of American agriculture.”

Last month, NASS mailed the Census of Agriculture questionnaires to every known ag producer in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Conducted just once every five years, the ag census provides a complete account of the nation’s farms and ranches and the people who operate them.

Producers can respond online at agcounts.usda.gov.
