The Ag Census gathers and provides information on the production of key agricultural commodities, land management practices and information on natural resources. After consultation with industry bodies and agricultural businesses, a more streamlined online form has been created aiming to give farmers quicker access to the 2016 Ag Census. To help farmers get online, the ABS will hold a series of community hubs in regional centres across Australia in July and August, including Katherine in the NT. ABS spokesman Lisa Wardlaw-Kelly said while the completion date for farmers to provide information to the ABS was July 7, we understand some people need some extra support completing their form and we want to be on hand to provide that. By getting online, the farming community will be able to complete the Ag Census in a faster, easier, secure and environmentally friendly way, she said. The NTs only community hub will be open between 9am and 4pm on August 2 and 3 at Katherine Civic Centre. Tracy Village Social and Sports Club, Inc.
