Time is Running Out to Complete the Census of Ag
This is your last chance to respond to the 2022 Census of Agriculture! There’s still time to return your ag census questionnaire – don’t miss your chance! The ag census gives you the opportunity to help shape decisions that will impact your operation, community, and the future of U.S. agriculture for the next several years. Not being represented in widely used ag census data means risking being underserved.
If you produced and sold $1,000 or more of agricultural product in 2022, or normally would have produced and sold that much, you meet USDA’s definition of a farm. However, landowners who lease land to producers, those solely involved in conservation programs, and even those who may not have farmed in 2022 are still required to respond. If you received the ag census but do not fit the definition of a farm, are no longer farming, never farmed, or have another update for us, please write your status on the form and mail it back. Every response matters.
Respond online at agcounts.usda.gov or return your form by mail TODAY.
