USDA Weekly Crop Progress     11/26
Crop Progress

ISSN: 1948-3007

Released November 26, 2018, by the National Agricultural Statistics Service 
(NASS), Agricultural Statistics Board, United States Department of 
Agriculture (USDA).

Special Note

COMING SOON - NASS's annual December surveys on crops and 
livestock. During the first two weeks of December, NASS will 
survey over 81,000 United States producers. One of USDA's largest 
survey efforts, the responses will provide the final information 
about 2018 U.S. row crops focusing on harvested acreage, 
production, and storage. The survey will also be used to help 
establish county level estimates used by the Farm Service Agency 
for the Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) program and the Risk 
Management Agency to administer insurance programs. In addition, 
hog producers will be asked about their current inventory, pig 
crop, and farrowing intentions for the next six months. The 
results will be available beginning with the Hogs and Pigs report 
on December 21, followed by the Annual Crop Production Summary 
and other reports on January 11. County level row crop estimates 
will be released later in 2019. Farmers should watch for their 
survey and be sure to respond. Your information matters!
