‘Organic’ producers to participate in survey

Progressive Cattle Editor Dave Natzke Published on 22 November 2019

The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will mail letters with survey codes this December to more than 22,000 U.S. producers involved in certified or transitioning to certified organic farming for the 2019 Organic Survey.

Each producer who self-reported organic farming in the 2017 Census of Agriculture will receive a unique survey code to respond conveniently online. Farmers and ranchers are asked to complete their surveys online via the NASS secure website. Producers who receive the 2019 Organic Survey are required to respond by federal law.

The 2019 Organic Survey results will expand on the 2017 Census of Agriculture data by looking at several aspects of organic agriculture during the 2019 calendar year, including production, marketing practices, income, expenses and more. 

The deadline for response is Jan. 10, 2020. Results will be available October 2020.  end mark
