The USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) issues a "Notice of Opportunity To Submit Content Request for the 2022 Census of Agriculture" https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/06/25/2019-13432/notice-of-opportunity-to-submit-content-request-for-the-2022-census-of-agriculture

Comments are due by July 25, 2019.

In preparation for the 2017 Census of Agriculture, NASS made numerous changes to the content and layout of the questionnaire based on extensive testing and input from data users. NASS is looking to stabilize the questionnaire for the 2022 Census of Agriculture so that data series can be created to measure more accurately all changes in U.S. agriculture. NASS recognizes that timely, reliable, and detailed statistics help maintain a stable economic atmosphere and reduce risk for production, marketing, and distribution operations. NASS is the primary data collection Agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). NASS is looking for ways to streamline the questionnaire to reduce respondent burden and data collection costs, while still providing data users with the detailed data they need.

NASS is beginning the process of planning the content of the 2022 Census of Agriculture. We are seeking input on ways to improve the census of agriculture. Recommendations or any other ideas concerning the census would be greatly appreciated. The 2017 Census of Agriculture questionnaire may be viewed on-line at: www.nass.usda.gov/​go/​censusform.

I'm part owner of a farm and have filled this out. It would be helpful to provide farm owners with a copy of their answers to the previous Survey, so they could just insert changes, in case they can't find their old answers in their own files.
