Waco, TX – According to the officials, last month, the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistical Service (NASS) mailed the Census of Agriculture questionnaires to every known ag producer in the United States 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 information collected by the Census shapes agricultural policy, programs, and disaster response.
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Miller released the following statement:
“This survey serves the nation’s agriculture community for five years when it is released in 2024. So what information is gathered now impacts American agriculture through 2029, when the 2027 Census data is released. I cannot stress enough the importance of participating in the Ag Census.”
The USDA’s NASS will release the results of the Ag Census in 2024. All Census information must be received by the Monday, February 6, 2023 deadline.
