The National Corn Growers Association is reminding corn growers that the deadline to respond to the 2022 Census of Agriculture is Monday, Feb. 6. Producers can respond online at agcounts.usda.gov or by mail.
NASS mailed the Census of Agriculture questionnaires to every known ag producer in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Conducted just once every five years, the ag census provides a complete account of the nation’s farms and ranches and the people who operate them.
The Census of Agriculture informs decisions about policy, programs, rural development, research, and more. The survey results are the only source of uniform, comprehensive, and impartial agriculture data for every state, county and U.S. territory. U.S. farm operations of all sizes, urban and rural, which produced and sold, or normally would have sold, $1,000 or more of agricultural products in 2022, are included.
NASS will release the results of the ag census in 2024. Visit nass.usda.gov/agcensus, for more information and to complete the survey.
