The USDA is seeking information on prospective customers. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.
Producers can now take a nationwide survey to help the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) improve and increase access to its programs and services for America’s farmers, ranchers, and forest managers. The survey gathers feedback on programs and services available through USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and Risk Management Agency (RMA).
Robert Bonnie, USDA’s Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation says a robust survey response that includes the perspectives of all of our customers, including underserved producers, will help USDA better understand the unique needs of both existing and prospective customers while identifying opportunities to enhance government programs and services.
In addition to the online survey, the FPAC Business Center, which is administering the survey, will also mail 11,000 printed surveys to various local state stakeholder organizations and farmers markets. The survey is available online at farmers.gov/survey, and producers should complete by March 31, 2023.
