USDA issues highly-anticipated planting survey
At the start of the planting season, USDA mailed more than 6,000 surveys to producers in the northeast in hopes of better understanding what this year’s harvest could look like.
Some of the questions asked cover the types of crops planted, the amount of grain and oilseed stored on the farm, and how many acres are intended to be planted. Producers can respond to the survey online or by mail.
If you did not respond by late February, you could be asked for an interview.
“You can help us make these reports as accurate and as valuable as possible.”
If you received a survey but have not responded, the USDA urges you to do so.
