Be Watching for NASS Survey on Planting Intentions Later in February

Be Watching for NASS Survey on Planting Intentions Later in February How will the uncertain economy affect U.S. farmer’s planting intentions in 2012? How many acres of corn do farmers intend to plant this growing season? The March Agricultural Survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will survey 82,000 U.S. farmers in March 2012 to ask such questions about farmers’ plans for the 2012 season.



“Each year, the agricultural industry watches for the results of the March Agricultural Survey, which provides the first official estimates of U.S. farmers’ planting intentions for 2012,” said Wilbert Hundl, director of the NASS Oklahoma Field Office. “When producers finalize their cropping and marketing plans, this survey will be one of the most important sources of information for them,” Hundl added.



NASS will mail the survey questionnaire in late February, asking producers to provide information about the types of crops they intend to plant in 2012, how many acres they intend to plant, and the amounts of grain and oilseed they store on their farms. NASS encourages producers to respond via the Internet but also welcomes mail or fax responses and offers non-responding producers the opportunity for a telephone or personal interview.



NASS will compile and analyze the survey information and publish the results in a series of USDA reports, including the annual Prospective Plantings report and quarterly Grain Stocks report, both to be released on March 30, 2012.



As with all NASS surveys, information provided by respondents is confidential by law. NASS safeguards the privacy of all survey responses and publishes only aggregate data, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified. All reports are available on the NASS web site- Click here to jump to the NASS website.. For more information on NASS surveys and reports, call the USDA-NASS Oklahoma Field Office at (888) 525-9226.
