Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — The second phase of the 2018 Agriculture census started this week and ends on Friday, Oct. 25th. Teams made up of employees from the Commerce Department, Agriculture Department, and the ASCC Land Grant will visit villages to enumerate farms that were not enumerated during the initial enumeration earlier this year in May and June.

We ask the public’s cooperation and assistance with our field staff as they visit our villages so they will not encounter any problems or hostility when out on the field. The field enumeration will be conducted after hours.

The Department of Commerce would like to thank the public for their support with the Agriculture Census. If you have any questions, please free free to contact the Research and Statistics Division at 633-5155 between 7:30a.m. and 4p.m. Monday-Friday .

The Agriculture Census is funded by the U.S Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service.
