The Florida Agricultural Statistics Service (FASS) is the main agricultural data gathering agency in Florida with the purpose of collecting, compiling and providing current statistics. This service is provided in cooperation with the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS). The data collection is conducted by employees of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA). A primary goal of FASS is to provide farmers, ranchers and other producers of agricultural commodities with unbiased and reliable information to assist them in making production and marketing decisions. Other important users of agricultural statistics are farm organizations, agribusiness and transportation firms, state and national policy makers, and foreign buyers of agricultural products. Farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses provide the data which are collected through a broad program of sample surveys throughout the year.
