USDA surveys - farmer input needed

USDA surveys - farmer input needed

By Scout Nelson

U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is conducting two significant mid-year surveys, the June Agricultural Survey and the June Area Survey. Producers in South Dakota will be contacted to provide essential information on crop acreage and stock levels as of June 1, 2024.

The surveys play a crucial role in determining expected acreage and supply of major commodities in the United States for the 2024 crop year. Results are utilized by various stakeholders, including farmers, ranchers, USDA, businesses, researchers, and policymakers, to make informed decisions benefiting the agricultural sector.

Producers can participate in the surveys online, by phone, or through mail, providing details on planted and harvested acreage, grain stocks, livestock inventory, and land values. NASS assures confidentiality of individual responses and publishes data in aggregate form to protect respondents' privacy.

Survey data will be analyzed and published in USDA reports, including the annual Acreage and quarterly Grain Stocks reports. Additionally, the information contributes to various other reports, such as Crop Production, Small Grains Summary, Farms and Land in Farms, and World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates.

NASS encourages farmers and ranchers to participate in the surveys, emphasizing the importance of their input in supporting and promoting U.S. agriculture. Survey results aid in agricultural planning, market analysis, and policy formulation, benefiting the entire agricultural community.
