Sign up by June 30 to be counted in the 2022 Census of Agriculture

June 5, 2022 |

In Washington, D.C., June 30, 2022 is the last day to sign up for the 2022 Census of Agriculture which is a complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them and is taken once every five years. The ag census, conducted for over 180 years, remains the only source of comprehensive and impartial agricultural data for every state and county in the nation.

It includes every operation – large or small, urban or rural – from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products are produced and sold, or would normally be produced and sold, in the ag census year.

If you have never received a census and are new to NASS surveys, sign up to be counted today. You do not need to sign up if you already receive NASS surveys.

Key Dates:

June 30, 2022 – sign up ends

November 2022 – census mails out

February 2023 – response deadline

Spring/summer 2024 – data release

“The Census of Agriculture is a collective voice that tells the story and value of American agriculture. The data influence action and inform policy and program decisions that directly impact producers, their operations, and everyone they touch – and that’s all of us,” said Barbara Rater, NASS Census and Survey Division director. “This is why a complete count, with every producer getting and taking the opportunity to be represented in these data, is so important.”
