Crop Report Surveys
The Department of Agriculture/Weights & Measures is conducting our annual survey for the Sonoma County Agricultural Crop Report. If you are an agricultural producer, it is important that we receive your production figures because the accuracy of our report depends on your participation. We need your help to arrive at meaningful totals for value and production. All information you provide is kept strictly confidential, and only grand totals are made public. The Sonoma County Agricultural Crop Report promotes the value and importance of our County’s agricultural industry.Please include only what was grown by you in Sonoma County during 2022.
Every response is important. The Crop Report is a valuable publication and is widely distributed to public officials and government agencies, as well as many businesses interested in agriculture. All past Crop Reports can be viewed at https://sonomacounty.ca.gov/natural-resources/agricultural-weights-and-measures/crop-reports.
