The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is in the process of surveying growers on key farm issues. The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) encourages growers to complete the following upcoming surveys:
- Now – through Early September… 5 NASS’s Conservation Practice Adoption Motivations survey
No one knows the story of conservation in U.S. ag better than farmers and ranchers. Don’t miss your chance to tell that story! Respond to USDA NASS’s Conservation Practice Adoption Motivations Survey by Sept. 5. Survey data will guide the implementation of USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service programs in the future. Respond online at www.agcounts.usda.gov.
- In the mail… September Grain Stocks Report
Grain Stocks Report survey is in the mail. Survey data help the industry evaluate export potential and calculate supply of the crops available for the marketing year. You can respond securely online at www.agcounts.usda.gov. This survey collects information on stocks of whole grains and oilseeds stored off-farm as of Sept. 1.
- Coming in November… The Census of Agriculture
Farmers are encouraged to take part in the Census of Agriculture in November. The Census of Agriculture is a complete count of U.S. farms, ranches and the people who operate them. It is the only source of uniform, comprehensive and impartial agriculture data for every county and state in the nation.
