Agricultural Resource Management Survey (ARMS) is the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s primary source of information on the production practices, resource use, and economic well-being of America’s farms and ranches.
The survey is open to all farmers. It has been extended until January 14. The survey seeks information about production practices and data from producers of corn.
These survey results are the only reliable source of objective information for evaluating many critical issues relating to agriculture and rural economies.
Participation by farmers in ARMS means that policy makers, as well as others, including ranchers and farmers, can base important decisions on facts directly from the source.
ARMS also tells American agriculture’s story to the public who has less and lesser direct contact with the farm community.
The survey section that is available asks about fertilizer, pesticides, cropping practice, and technology management.
Participants in the survey were corn producers from Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota.
