County-level estimates for 2016 row crops available
County-level estimates for 2016 row crops are now available, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. The estimates, based primarily on surveys conducted with farmers and ranchers last fall, can be accessed using the QuickStats online database, found here: http://www.nass.usda.gov/Quick_Stats/
County-level row crop estimates are not published if any of the following conditions exist:
• Estimated planted acres are less than 500.
• Insufficient number of producer reports were received to establish statistically defensible estimates.
• Estimate would not guarantee confidentiality of reported data from an individual producer.
The commodity estimates released today include corn, sorghum, soybeans, and sunflowers.
County-level estimates for hay and dry edible beans will be published in April 2017.
A complete schedule of release dates can be found on the following website: http:/www.nass.usda.gov/Data_and_Statistics/County_Data_Files/Release_Schedule/
