USDA seeking Industry Feedback

Please take the time to respond to U.S. Department of Agriculture interviewers who may call to help you complete the Agricultural Resource Management Survey (ARMS), Rice Production Practices and Costs Report for 2021.

Data collection will continue through January 14, 2022.
