USDA’s newly-released Census of Agriculture shows women and young farmers play important roles on the farm.

Statistician Virginia Harris told USDA’s Agriculture Outlook Forum Thursday they started collecting more information in 2017 about men and women, and their roles on the farm. “Most women are involved in farms with other people. Just 11% of farms with a female producer have just one person involved.”

Harris says female producers account for 36% of farm producers.
