2016 Texas Custom Rates Survey is Open

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Department of Agricultural Economics is conducting the 2016 Texas Custom Rates Survey.

Each year our offices receive many requests for current custom rate information and the latest Custom Rates Publication.  The survey and publication are the only source to find the going rates paid for these types of services.  Questions in the survey include rates paid/charged for specific tillage, planting, application, harvesting, and other services or operations performed on a custom basis.

If you have knowledge of rates in your area, and appreciate the value of publishing this type of market information, please consider participating in the survey which can be found online at:

The survey will ask that you only complete the questions that pertain to your operation, therefore most people should be able to complete the survey in 10-15 minutes or less.  The survey will be open from February through mid-April.  Your participation will help make sure the published information is the most accurate and reliable possible.  If you have any questions regarding the survey please contact Dr. Steven Klose (
