South Dakota Ag Connection - 05/26/2023

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) has initiated the first phase of the 2023 Agricultural Resource Management Survey (ARMS) in South Dakota. Approximately 1,600 farmers and ranchers in the state can expect to receive survey forms in their mailboxes. This annual survey serves as a vital tool for examining various aspects of agricultural production in the United States and assessing the overall well-being of farms.

Through the ARMS survey, comprehensive data is gathered on multiple facets of agricultural operations, providing valuable insights into the industry. Farmers and ranchers are encouraged to actively participate and provide accurate information, as the survey contributes to the formulation of agricultural policies and decision-making processes.

The survey's scope encompasses a wide range of topics, including crop cultivation, livestock management, land use, production costs, income, and various socioeconomic factors affecting farm households. By analyzing the collected data, the USDA gains a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the agricultural sector, enabling them to develop strategies to support farmers and ensure the sustainability of U.S. agriculture.

The participation of South Dakota's farmers and ranchers in the ARMS survey plays a crucial role in shaping the future of the agricultural industry, fostering informed decision-making, and promoting the well-being of farms across the state.
