Ag producers have until June 30 to sign-up to receive the 2022 Census of Agriculture.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will mail ag census survey codes for responding securely online to every known U.S. producer in November, and hard copy questions will be mailed in December.
The ag census has been conducted for more than 180 years and remains the only source of comprehensive and impartial agricultural data for every state and county in the nation. It includes operations of all sizes and in all locations.
“The Census of Agriculture is a collective voice that tells the story and value of American agriculture,” says Barbara Rater, NASS Census and Survey Division Director. “The data influences actions and informs policy and program decisions that directly impact producers, their operations, and everyone they touch, which is all of us.”
That’s why NASS wants every producer to participate in the census. For more information, producers can go to nass.usda.gov/AgCensus.

Sign up to be counted in the 2022 Census of Agriculture
Sign up and be Counted by June 30, 2022. https://www.nass.usda.gov/AgCensus/in… Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack’s message on the value and impact of the Census of Agriculture. If you are an agricultural producer who did not receive the 2017 Census of Agriculture and does not receive other USDA surveys, you still have time to sign up to receive the 2022 #AgCensus this fall. The Census of Agriculture is a complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them. All ag production counts – rural or urban of every size – if $1,000 or more of agricultural products were raised/grown and sold, or normally would have been during the ag census year. The Census of Agriculture, taken only once every five years, looks at land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures. For America’s farmers and ranchers, the Census of Agriculture is their voice, their future, and their opportunity.
