Sparks Announces Agriculture Forms Still Being Accepted

MONTGOMERY- Agriculture and Industries Ron Sparks says the original deadline for returning completed Census of Agriculture  forms may have come and gone, but it's not  too late for Alabama farmers to speak up for their communities, industries, and their future.

The U.S Department of Agriculture‘s National Agriculture Statistics Service (NASS) reminds farmers that their voice needs to be heard.  The agriculture census provides the only source for uniform and comprehensive agricultural data for every county in the nation.

"If you don't think you are a farmer send it in anyway and we will make the determination for you. Through the census, producers can show the nation the value and importance of agriculture and can help influence decisions that will shape the future of American agriculture for years to come," said Sparks

The agriculture census offers a tremendous value to everyone involved in agriculture, and the time it takes to complete the agriculture census form pales in comparison to the value they get in return. The decisions that will be made based on the agriculture census totals will affect Alabama's agricultural community in the coming years.

The law requiring farmers and ranchers to complete census forms also protects confidentiality and privacy of the information they supply. Individual forms cannot be seen by anyone other than sworn NASS employees.

For more information you can contact the U.S Department of Agriculture's National Agriculture Statistics Service (NASS) by visiting  www.agcensus.usda.gov  or calling toll- free (888) 424-7828 or contacting their local office at (334)279-3555.
