USDA seeks feedback from producers about 2020 crops and stocks

Little Rock, AR – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service

(NASS) is conducting the June Agricultural Survey. The agency is contacting nearly 1,800 producers

across Arkansas to determine crop acreage and stock levels as of June 1, 2020.

“The June Agricultural Survey is a critical survey of commodities for the 2020 growing

season,” said Eugene Young, director of the NASS Delta Regional Office. “When growers respond

to this survey, they provide essential information that helps determine the expected acreage and

supply of major commodities in the United States for the 2020 crop year. Results from this survey

are used by farmers and ranchers, USDA, businesses, exporters, researchers, economists,

policymakers, and others who use the survey information in making a wide range of decisions that

benefit the producer.”

Growers can respond to the June Agricultural Survey online, by phone, or mail. They will be

asked to provide information on planted and harvested acreage, including acreage for biotech crops,

and grain stocks.

“NASS safeguards the privacy of all respondents by keeping all individual information

confidential, and publishing the data in aggregate form only to ensure that no operation or producer

can be identified,” said Young. “We recognize that this is a hectic time for farmers, but the

information they provide helps U.S. agriculture remain viable and capable. I urge them to respond to

the June Agricultural survey and thank them for their cooperation.”

NASS will analyze the survey information and publish the results in a series of USDA

reports, including the annual Acreage and quarterly Grain Stocks reports, to be released June 30,

2020. The survey data also contribute to NASS’ monthly and annual Crop Production reports, the

annual Small Grains Summary, and USDA’s monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand
