2017 agriculture census to arrive in December

Every five years, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) conducts the Census of Agriculture. The 2017 ag census will be mailed in mid-December, 2017 and will be a complete count of all U.S. farms, ranches and operators. It is important to collect the number of farms in rural areas and counties, to help determine finances and other resources for programs that support these communities. New farmers or those who did not receive a Census of Agriculture in 2012 may sign up for the 2017 Census of Agriculture at www.agcensus.usda.gov.
