USDA Seeking Producer Feedback about 2022 Crops



Over the next few weeks, the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will conduct two major mid-year surveys, the June Agricultural Survey and the June Area Survey. NASS will contact nearly 5,000 producers across Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina to determine crop acreage and stock levels as of June 1, 2022.

“The June Agricultural Survey and the June Area Survey are two of the most important and well-known surveys NASS conducts,” explained Anthony Prillaman, Director of the NASS Southern Regional Office. “When producers respond to these surveys, they provide essential information that helps determine the expected acreage and supply of major commodities in the United States for the 2022 crop year.”

NASS gathers the data for the June Agricultural Survey online at, by mail, phone and in-person interviews. Producers will be asked to provide information on planted and harvested acreage, including acreage for biotech crops and grain stocks.


For the June Area Survey, agency representatives will interview farm and ranch operators in randomly selected segments. Producers will be asked to provide information on crop acreage, grain stocks, livestock inventory, land values, and value of sales.

“NASS safeguards the privacy of all respondents, by keeping all individual information confidential and publishing the data in aggregate form only to ensure that no operation or producer can be identified,” said Prillaman. “We recognize that this is a hectic time for farmers, but the information they provide helps U.S. agriculture remain viable and capable.”

NASS will analyze the survey information and publish the results in a series of USDA reports, including the annual Acreage and quarterly Grain Stocks reports June 30, 2022.
