It is time for the 2017 Census of Agriculture

Every five years the USDA conducts the Census of Agriculture. The Census of Agriculture illustrates the power of data which is used to develop and shape farm programs and services.

For example, data from the Census help:

  • Shape programs and initiatives that benefit young and beginning farmers and ranchers;
  • Expand access to resources that help women, veteran, and minority farmers and ranchers;
  • And help farmers and ranchers diversify into new markets, including local and regional food systems, specialty crops, and organic production.

It is important to respond, no matter how big or small your operation is. Watch for your Census of Agriculture form coming this December!
