Be on the lookout for the Census of Agriculture questionnaires
As you collect this year’s Christmas cards from the mailbox, there is another important piece of mail you need to watch out for.
If you sold more than $1,000 worth of products this year, you will likely receive the Census of Agriculture. Census information was sent out last month, and now, questionnaires are on their way to 3 million farmers.
Leaders at USDA Statistics Service say it is the largest data collection effort the Department does. They say the more data they receive, the better equipped USDA can be to help producers.
