The agriculture census is conducted once every five years and is the only comprehensive source of agricultural data for every state and county in the U.S. The data gathered will influence lawmakers' decisions about farm policy, disaster relief, insurance and loan programs, infrastructure improvements and agribusiness setup, says NASS Administrator Hubert Hamer.

Data from the Census of Agriculture is scheduled to be released in February 2019.
