It is NOT too late to respond to the 2017 Census of Agriculture!February 6, 2018
The Ag Census shows the importance and value of agriculture on reservation lands and provides the public and Tribal officials with crop and livestock information. It is important that every producer be reflected in the data so that no operation or community is underserved in the years to come.
Returns have been steady, but in an effort to ensure a complete representation of U.S. agriculture, over the next few weeks, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service will follow-up with producers who missed the deadline through additional mailings, emails, phone calls, and personal appointments. Along with revealing important changes and trends in agriculture, census data are widely used and often relied on when developing policy like the Farm Bill.
Census data can and probably will directly affect producers and their communities over the next few years. Without being represented in the data, our hardworking producers risk being underserved. There is accuracy and strength in numbers – every response matters. NASS is required by federal law to keep all information confidential, use the data only for statistical purposes, and only publish in aggregate form to prevent disclosing the identity of any individual producer or farm operation. Data release is scheduled for February 2019.
For questions or assistance with the census, producers can call toll-free (888) 424-7828.
