Clarification on number of agricultural establishments in Census of Agriculture
The Census of Agriculture 2017 already visited 81.5% of the nearly 5.2 million rural establishments initially estimated by the IBGE, i.e., nearly 4.3 million agricultural establishments. The end of the data collection is scheduled for late February. The definitive number of agricultural establishments, which may match or not the initial estimate, will be known in the end of the assessment and supervision tasks, which should last until June 2018. Before that, the IBGE is not able to inform whether the number of agricultural establishments increased or decreased in relation to 2006.
