Highlights from the 2022 USDA Census of Agriculture

On Tuesday, March 26, 2024, AFT’s Farmland Information Center and National Agricultural Land Network hosted a webinar on Highlights from the 2022 Census of Agriculture with presenters from the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). This presentation highlighted data on farms and ranches and the land they cover, their economic outlook, and producer demographics. NASS staff also discussed census data collection and significant changes to data items that may affect comparability over time. The webinar was geared toward farmland protection practitioners to help professionals understand and tap into a key source of uniform, comprehensive, and impartial agricultural data for every state and county.
