Representative Farms - The AFPC maintains a database of agricultural operations representing the major agricultural production regions of the country. These operations are used in policy research analysis. The representative farms are updated every two years using face to face panel interviews. Types of operations include cotton, rice, feed grain, and wheat farms, cattle ranches, and dairies. Contact: George Knapek
