(WASHINGTON, DC) ― The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will release preliminary results of the 2012 Census of Agriculture on February 20, 2014. The release, which will provide an initial look at national and state findings, will take place at the Ag Outlook Forum. NASS will release the full Census results at a later date and is working to set a revised schedule that ensures the highest-quality data. The release date was delayed by the work stoppage caused by the lapse in federal funding in October 2013 .
