Two days left to sign up for Census of Agriculture

Are you a new farmer or rancher? Sign up by June 30 to make sure you're counted in this year's Census of Agriculture.

Visit the Census of Agriculture's site to watch an informational video, see FAQs, view data or try a demo of the new and improved census questionnaire. The new questionnaire saves time by calculating totals automatically and skipping questions that aren't relevant to you. If you are registered, you'll receive a census questionnaire in December.

The census is seeking responses from those who have produced and sold (or normally would have sold) more than $1,000 in agricultural products during the year 2017.

"The definition includes millions of farmers, ranchers and producers--rural and urban--and it is vital that all are represented in this complete count endeavor every five years," says Barbara Rater of the National Agricultural Statistics Service. "Their voices show the nation the value and importance of agriculture, and help influence decisions that will shape the future of American agriculture for years to come."
