USDA to Survey Farmers' 2019 Planting Intentions
USAgNet - 02/18/2019
As the 2019 crop production season begins, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will contact producers nationwide to determine their plans for the upcoming growing season.
NASS will mail the survey questionnaire in February, asking producers to provide information about the types of crops they intend to plant in 2019, how many acres they intend to plant, and the amounts of grain and oilseed stored on their farms. NASS
encourages producers to respond online or by mail. Those producers who do not respond by the deadline may be contacted for a telephone or personal interview.
NASS safeguards the privacy of all respondents and publishes only aggregate data, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified.
