NASS to Conduct First Hemp Acreage & Production Survey
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/15/2021

USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service will mail its first Hemp Acreage and Production Survey to 20,500 producers across the nation next week. The survey will collect information on the total planted and harvested area, yield, production, and value of hemp in the United States.

"This inaugural hemp survey will establish a necessary benchmark and provide critically-needed data for the hemp industry," said NASS Acting Administrator Kevin Barnes. "The information collected can help inform producers' decisions about growing, harvesting, and selling hemp as well as the type of hemp they decide to produce. The resulting data will also foster greater understanding of the hemp production landscape across regulatory agencies, producers, state and Tribal governments, processors, and other key industry entities."

Survey recipients are asked to respond securely online using a 12-digit survey code mailed with the survey, or to mail completed questionnaires back in the prepaid envelope provided, by October 25.

All information reported by individuals will be kept confidential and the survey results will be released in February.
