Response Deadline Looms for Land Tenure Survey Sent to Oklahoma Agricultural Producers

Mon, 15 Oct 2018 10:25:07 CDT

Response Deadline Looms for Land Tenure Survey Sent to Oklahoma Agricultural Producers A number of agricultural producers throughout Oklahoma should be taking steps to fill out and mail back a land tenure survey they received from Oklahoma State University and the Oklahoma Field Office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service.



“Producers are encouraged to respond by Oct. 22,” said Roger Sahs, OSU Cooperative Extension agricultural economist. “More response data means better, more reliable information can be passed along relative to pasture rental rates, cropland rental rates and similar topics of interest that can affect an operation’s potential profitability.”



The response data also forms the basis for updates to Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service producer and landowner aids, including reference publications such as current reports 216 and 230, which list the latest information relative to agricultural-related rental rates.



OSU Cooperative Extension reports, fact sheets and other publications are available online at http://facts.okstate.edu and through all Extension county offices, typically listed under “County Government” in local directories.



“Many producers and landowners need to know this accumulated data to make informed decisions regarding their agribusiness enterprises,” Sahs said. “The time and energy spent filling out and mailing back the survey represents an investment in one’s own operation or property, and just happens to help out everyone else in the process.”



Producers and landowners who received but did not mail back the 2018 Leasing Survey questionnaire by Oct. 22 should not be surprised to get a phone call from the Oklahoma Field Office of NASS.



“The land tenure survey is one example of many ways the cooperative partnership between NASS and OSU benefits Oklahoma producers and helps strengthen local and regional economies dependent on their agribusinesses,” said Troy Marshall, NASS state statistician for Oklahoma. “Our goal is to make available the best information possible to those who need it. To do that, we need responses to our surveys.”



NASS is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Founded in 1863, NASS is charged with providing timely, accurate and useful statistics in service to U.S. agriculture. The organization conducts hundreds of surveys annually.



The Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service is one of two state agencies administered by OSU’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, and is a key part of the university’s state and federally mandated teaching, research and Extension land-grant mission.
