Each month, ESD surveys agricultural producers to gather information about the number of seasonal workers employed, types of crops, work activities and wages. Based on these data, ESD estimates the size of the agricultural workforce and average wages.
These data are reported statewide and for each of six agricultural reporting areas in Washington state. Go to a map of Washington’s agricultural reporting areas.
