USDA announced that it will conduct the first-ever, wide-scale survey of organic farming in the United States to find out how organic farming may be changing U.S. agricultural practices.  USDA’s survey will look at many aspects of organic farming during the 2008 calendar year – from production and marketing practices, to income and expenses.

 

 

 

USDA will focus not only on operations that are currently engaged in organic production, but also on those farms making a transition to more organic agricultural practices.  The survey is critically important to farmers because its results will help shape USDA decisions regarding farm policy, funding allocations, availability of goods and services, community development and other key issues.

 

In addition, the information can help farmers make informed decisions about the future of their own farming operations.  For more information about the Organic Production Survey, visit www.agcensus.usda.gov or call (800) 727-9540.  Someone alert Ritchie down in Frankfort about this survey!!
