Organic Agriculture Survey
About the Organic Program

The organic surveys provide acreage, production, and sales data for a variety of organic crop and livestock commodities as well as organic marketing and agricultural practices. The first survey was conducted in 2008 to support an emerging organic industry. The 2008, 2014 and 2019 organic surveys are Census Special Studies, conducted as follow-on surveys to the Census of Agriculture. These data collection efforts surveyed all known organic operations in the U.S. The 2011, 2015, and 2016 certified organic surveys were conducted in cooperation with the USDA’s Risk Management Agency in an effort to expand the number and variety of premium price elections for certified organic crops.
