2015 Urban Agriculture Pilot Study

USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service is conducting the 2015 Urban Agriculture Pilot Study in Baltimore, Maryland. This study will help quantify agriculture activities in Baltimore, Maryland and prepare for the next Census of Agriculture program. All U.S. agriculture production is important for our nation’s food security, including products grown in rural areas and urban areas. Ensuring that all agriculture activities are accounted for in the next Agricultural Census will help provide the most complete picture of agriculture on which to base agricultural policy, program, and funding decisions.
