Many farmers are already counted – are you one? Complete the Ag Census

Published Mar. 13, 2013

The deadline for submitting Ag Census forms was Feb. 4, and 1.4 million census forms have already been returned. However, those farmers who did not respond by the original due date will receive another copy of the form in the mail to give them another opportunity. USDA reminds farmers that their farm is important and needs to be counted. It is required by law to respond to the census if you receive a form. NASS will start following up with nonrespondents by March 14 through either a phone call or visit.
