Still Time to Respond to the California Irrigation Survey

USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Pacific Regional Office wants recipients of the California Irrigation Survey to know that there is still time to respond. Survey recipients may respond securely online at www.agcounts.usda.gov, by phone or mail.

In July, NASS mailed the survey to around 20,000 California farmers and ranchers. A joint project between NASS, the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and the California Department of Water Resources, the California Irrigation Survey measures irrigation methods used within the state.

“The data gathered will be compared with earlier surveys (1972, 1980, 1991, 2001, 2010, and 2016) to study how irrigation methods are changing and to make projections of future changes.” said Richard Snyder, Emeritus Biometeorology Specialist, University of California, Davis.

All information reported by individuals will be kept confidential, as required by federal law. For assistance with the survey, producers can call the NASS Pacific Regional Office at (800) 851-1127.
