Dear Farmers
I would like to ask you to PLEASE complete the USDA ag census so that
you can be counted. Not only does this information help the community
what we have and don't have in each state but it is also important to
determine areas of interest and needs for research and outreach. By
indicating the number of farms, what they grow, their size we can better
adjust research to reflect the farms' needs.  Also it helps to leverage
support from the government, a way to reflect ouput of our tax dollars.
I hope that you can take the time to complete this document. here is the
press release from the USDA about the 2008 ag census:
