    New Jersey farmers have the opportunity to make their voices heard and help shape the future of agriculture for years to come with the 2012 Census of Agriculture.  The surveys must be filled out and returned by February 4, 2013.

    Conducted every five years by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Census is a complete count of the nation’s farms and the people who operate them.  The Census looks at land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures and other topics.  It provides a source of uniform, comprehensive agricultural data for every county in the nation.

    Producers may return their forms by mail or online.  Click here to go directly to the online response page.
