Nov 18, 2022Nationwide farmer, rancher and forest manager prospective customer survey
Take this very important survey by March 31, 2023! This voluntary, anonymous survey will take about 10 minutes to complete and asks about your general views and interactions with U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) agencies delivered by farm programs: Farm Service Agency (FSA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Risk Management Agency (RMA).
The survey is accessible online in English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Hmong, Korean, Navajo, Punjabi, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Urdu and Vietnamese.
Who should take the survey
All farmers, ranchers and forest managers are encouraged to take the survey. Existing customers and prospective customers both provide unique perspectives we’d like to hear. We’d especially like to hear from a new audience this year of prospective customers, those who don’t know about us or have yet to work with us, and those who were unable to participate in the past.
FSA, NRCS and RMA support agriculture by helping farmers, ranchers and forest managers leverage natural resources and mitigate the significant risks of farming through crop insurance, conservation programs, farm safety net programs, lending and disaster programs. From helping farmers recover after natural disasters and market fluctuations, to providing financial and technical assistance to improve operations through voluntary conservation, these agencies work together in partnership with private landowners to protect and enhance the natural resources vital to our Nation.
USDA’s Farm Production and Conservation (FPAC) Business Center works to improve services, making government agricultural programs more accessible, equitable and easier to use. Your survey feedback will assist FPAC agencies in learning about ways to enhance support and improve programs and services, increase access and advance equity for new and existing customers.
By taking the time to share your feedback, you are aiding government in helping all farmers, ranchers and forest managers secure the future of agriculture in the United States. Thank you for your partnership!
