With the 2022 growing season wrapping up, the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is busy contacting producers to gather final year-end crop production numbers and the amount of grain and oilseeds stored on their farms. Plus, NASS is surveying grain facility operators to determine year-end grain and oilseed stocks.
“These surveys are the basis for the official USDA estimates of production and harvested acres of all major agricultural commodities in the United States and year-end grain and oilseed supplies,” said NASS Southern Regional Director Anthony Prillaman. “Data from the survey will benefit farmers and processors by providing timely and accurate information to help them make critical year-end business decisions and begin planning for the next growing and marketing season.”
NASS will analyze the survey information and publish the data in a series of USDA reports, including the Crop Production Annual Summary and quarterly Grain Stocks reports, both scheduled for release on Thursday, January 12, 2023.
As with all NASS surveys, information provided by respondents is kept confidential, as required by federal law. The information is used for statistical purposes only and will not be disclosed in identifiable form.
All reports are available on the NASS website. For more information, call the NASS Southern Regional Field Office at (800) 253-4419.
