Take Part in NASS Production Survey

Nebraska field office will contact state's producers in June.

USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service is surveying thousands of farmers and ranchers across Nebraska to get a clearer indication of the acreage and supply of major commodities for 2011.

"With the 2011 growing season now in full swing, we can start to get a more complete picture of how things are shaping up for the agricultural sector," according to Dean Groskurth, director of the NASS field office in Nebraska. "We'll be looking at what crops have been planted, what commodities are in storage and how many livestock are in inventory."

Groskurth explains that NASS will gather this information through a major mid-year data collection effort.

 "For these surveys, producers are contacted by mail or phone, or we visit randomly selected tracts of land," he says.

This information will be a critical component of several key national reports, including the annual Acreage report and the quarterly Grain Stocks report, both to be released on June 30, all of which are available online at

"Especially in these challenging economic times, farmers, ranchers and the rest of the agricultural industry need timely, accurate data on the current state of U.S. agriculture," says Groskurth. "The information collected through our mid-year surveys will help producers, suppliers, traders, buyers, export customers, and others make sound and informed business decisions."
