USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service to Conduct Year-End Agricultural Survey

Mon, 28 Nov 2011 11:33:30 CST

USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service to Conduct Year-End Agricultural Survey As the 2011 growing season comes to an end the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will contact producers Nationwide to gather final year-end production numbers. After months of extreme drought, it is vital for Oklahoma farmers to respond to the December Agricultural Survey to ensure the impact of this historic drought is accurately represented.

"The December Agricultural Survey is the largest and most important year-end survey conducted by NASS," explained Wilbert C. Hundl, Jr, Director of the NASS Oklahoma Field Office. "This survey is the basis for the official USDA estimates of production and harvested acres of all major row crops and hay in the United States, as well as the first indication of acreage planted to winter wheat."

"Following a growing season with unprecedented weather-related challenges, data from the December Agricultural Survey will benefit farmers by providing timely and accurate information to help them make critical year-end business decisions and begin planning for next year," added Hundl.

During the first two weeks of December, NASS will contact selected Oklahoma producers by mail, telephone, or in person and ask them to provide information on their 2011 production of row crops and hay as well as winter wheat seedings and on-farm stocks of grains. The information will be compiled and published in a series of USDA reports, including the annual Crop Production summary and quarterly Grain Stocks report, both to be released on January 12, 2012.

As with all NASS surveys, information provided by respondents is confidential by law.

"NASS safeguards the confidentiality of all responses and publishes only state- and national-level data, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified," stated Hundl.

All reports are available on the NASS website. For more information on NASS surveys and reports, call the NASS Oklahoma Field Office at (888) 525-9226.
