USDA to Collect 2019 Oilseeds Data
Pennsylvania Ag Connection - 11/07/2019
As the 2019 growing season officially comes to an end, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will contact producers nationwide to gather oilseed data. The information will help determine the official USDA
estimates of 2019 acreage, harvested yield, and price for oilseed crops in the United States.
Data from the survey will benefit farmers and processors by providing timely and accurate information to help them make critical year-end business decisions and begin planning for the next growing and marketing season. NASS will analyze the survey
information and publish the results in the 2019 Crop Production Annual Summary report, to be released Jan. 10.
As with all NASS surveys, information provided by respondents is confidential, as required by federal law. NASS safeguards the privacy of all responses and publishes only aggregate data, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified.
