USDA’s Census of Agriculture depends on you

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is conducting the 2022 Census of Agriculture.

Every five years, the USDA seeks information from producers in all 50 states. The department issued survey codes to all known agriculture producers across the 50 states in late November. If you missed receiving the invitation, or prefer paper, those questionnaires will follow in December, according to the National Agriculture Statistics Service

The site, agcounts.usda.gov, helps the USDA get comprehensive and impartial agriculture data for every state, according to a USDA news release.

Through the surveys, producers can tell their story and help generate opportunities, according to the USDA.

The USDA will be sending producers paper “ballots” in December, but online offers time-saving feature for producers. All are due by Feb. 6, according to NASS.

The data not only influence business and supply chain logistics, they inform policy and program decisions that directly impact producers, ag operations, and communities across the United States. For the latest news and updates about the Census of Agriculture, visit nass.usda.gov/AgCensus.
