Delaware farmers are encouraged to complete the Census of Agriculture by the recently extended deadline of March 15, Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee said Tuesday.
"The Census is a valuable tool for farmers, agribusinesses and policymakers, and it is vital that farmers complete and return their forms," Secretary Kee said. "I thank those who have already completed their forms, and urge all others to do the same. We need the critical information the Census gathers to tell the story of agriculture's contributions and successes."
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service is still accepting completed forms, and will soon re-send forms to agricultural producers who did not complete the Census by the initial Feb. 4 deadline.
In the 2007 Census, 2,546 Delaware farmers reported $1.1 billion in sales. For more information, click here.
