Description

The Agricultural Districts Profile summary is a county listing that identifies the agricultural district number and names of towns within each district. Each district listing includes: creation date, anniversay date, total acres, farmed acres, cropped acres, acres owned, rented acres and number of farms. This dataset will be updated in January of each year. The Agricultural District Profile Data Summary is found at the following link:http://www.agriculture.ny.gov/AP/agservices/agdistricts.html. The Agricultural District Profile contains a listing of each county participating in the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets (DAM) Agricultural District program. Agricultural districts have been created in 53 of New York’s 62 counties. Participation in the Agricultural District program is landowner initiated and represents a local mechanism for the protection and enhancement of farmlands as a viable segment of the local and state economies.

Notes
Notes
The primary responsibility for the collection of data associated with agricultural districts lies with the counties and their legislative bodies.
Disclaimers
Disclaimer
The Department relies on the data sets and agricultural district maps submitted by the County for district reviews.
Limitations
Information on Agricultural Districts is gathered from counties during the year and statistical tabulations and district maps are updated once a year during the months of January and February and represents a data summary snap shot for the year. It is possible, at any given time, that the county agricultural district coordinator has data that is more up to date. In Chenango County, three agricultural districts are missing values for acreage. This is because the consolidation of agricultural districts is in progress. The concise counts of farmed, cropped, owned and rented acres is not available at this time.
