USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service wants recipients of the National Agricultural Classification Survey to know that there is still time to respond. Mailed last December to more than a million potential U.S. agricultural producers, the survey collects data on agricultural activity and basic farm information. The data will be used to build a survey recipient list for the 2022 Census of Agriculture. Response to the survey is required by federal law for all who receive the questionnaire, even if the recipient is not an active farmer or rancher. Questionnaires can be completed securely online at agcounts.usda.gov, by mail or phone. This week, USDA NASS extended the response deadline to March 7. Filling out the NACS is one of the most important steps to determining who should receive the Census of Agriculture questionnaire this fall, according to USDA. All information reported to USDA NASS is kept confidential, protected by federal law.
