NASS to Re-Survey Farmers with Previously Unharvested Crops
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/08/2020
The Agricultural Statistics Board of the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service announced it will re-survey farmers who previously reported unharvested crops.
Later this month, NASS will contact survey respondents in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and South Dakota who previously reported unharvested corn and/or soybean acreage. If the newly collected data justifies any changes, NASS will update the January
10 estimates in the May 12 Crop Production report. Stocks estimates are also subject to review since unharvested production is included in the estimate of on-farm stocks.
When NASS surveyed producers in December for the Crop Production 2019 Summary, there was significant unharvested acreage of corn and soybeans in the above states. The unharvested area and expected production were included in the totals released on
January 10. NASS announced plans to re-survey producers in January; however, because it was unclear when producers would be able to complete harvest, we could not set a re-survey date until now.
