With the window to respond to the 2012 Census of Agriculture officially closing on May 31, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is urging farmers and ranchers not to miss this opportunity to be counted and help determine the future of farming in America. USDA has already received more than 2 million completed census forms.
USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service may contact producers by phone or in person to collect census information since time is running out. Farmers and ranchers can also return their forms by mail or online by visiting a secure website, www.agcensus.usda.gov
