The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended their census deadline for agriculture producers.

Around 1.4 million forms have been returned for the 2012 Census of Agriculture, but the USDA is allowing producers extra time to return their census information.

The USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service conducts the census every five years. The deadline was originally on February 4th, but those who did not respond will receive another copy of the form in the mail.

“Accurate and comprehensive information from all farmers and ranchers is important so that the Census can provide a true picture of U.S. agriculture today and help everyone plan appropriately for the future,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

Farmers and ranchers can return their forms by mail, or submit their census information by visiting All agriculture producers are required to participate in the census under federal law, and all individual information will be kept confidential.
