DOUGLAS COUNTY – The Census of Agriculture is a comprehensive count of America’s farms and ranches and the people who operate them. Even small plots of land—whether rural or urban—growing fruits, vegetables, or certain food animals count if $1,000 or more of those products were harvested and sold, or would normally have been sold, during the census year.
The Census of Agriculture, conducted only once every five years, examines land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, revenues and expenses. For American farmers and ranchers, the Census of Agriculture is their voice, their future, and their opportunity.
The Agricultural Census is currently underway and June 30 is the last day to register for the 2022 Agricultural Census. If you have never received a census and are new to National Statistics Service surveys farms, you are required to register to be counted today.
