The 2017 Agricultural Census is coming up
Farmers, make sure you are counted in the 2017 Agricultural Census! You may request the report form all through June.
Producers who are new to farming or did not receive a Census of Agriculture in 2012 still have time to sign up to receive the 2017 Census of Agriculture report form by visiting agcensus.usda.gov and clicking on the “Make Sure You Are Counted ” button through June. NASS defines a farm as any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold, or normally would have been sold, during the census year (2017).
Please visit the agcensus.usda.gov website to be added.
