While many farmers in America have the fact they have used John Deere equipment in common with each other, another commonality has emerged as the USDA has sent a Census around the U.S.
The Augusta Chronicle reported that a federal survey is being sent around the country as a way to measure the nation's farming acreage, government subsidies and leading crops.
According to the news outlet, the USDA is preparing to mail the 2012 Agricultural Census to millions of farmers and ranchers across the U.S., as the agency is hoping to learn more about the farming practices used by participants.
"Local and national leaders use the Census to make decisions that directly impact your business, your community and your industry," according to the USDA. "Whether you’re farming four thousand acres or just four, it’s important. Every voice counts."
The National Cotton Council reported that this Census can also help farmers show the country how important agriculture is in the day-to-day dealings for average Americans, as it will help to identify the crop production that helps to feed families.
