2022 Census of Agriculture counting begins today

Farmers and ranchers can begin filling out the 2022 Census of Agriculture this week.

Joe Prusacki with USDA’s National Ag Statistics Service tells Brownfield beginning today, November 22nd, they’re sending out 2.6 million items of correspondence.

“The census is the only tool available that provides us micro level, down to the county level, information about agriculture.”

He says that micro level data is referenced when making decisions that impact farmers, including creation and implementation of the upcoming farm bill.
