We have begun data collection from farmers and ranchers for the annual Agricultural Resource Management Survey (ARMS). The survey looks at all aspects of U.S. agricultural production, the well-being of farm households, farm finances, chemical usage, and various farm production characteristics. The survey also collects detailed information on production practices, costs, and returns for different commodities on a rotating basis. In 2021, the survey will take a closer look at corn, rice, dairy and organic dairy production in the United States.
At this time, we have suspended in-person data collection. Farmers and ranchers are encouraged to complete their survey online at: agcounts.usda.gov with the survey code that was mailed to them.
