NASS To Resurvey Four States

June 30, 2011 06:39 AM
 

 In July, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will collect updated information on 2011 acres planted to corn, soybeans, Durum and other spring wheat in four states.

NASS previously collected planted acreage information during the first two weeks of June, with the results published in the June 30 Acreage report. At the time of the survey, a large percentage of acres remained to be planted in four states: Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. To better assess planted acreage, NASS will resurvey the growers in these states in July.

If the newly collected data justifies any changes, NASS will publish updated estimates in the Crop Production report, to be released at 8:30 a.m. EDT on Thursday, August 11. It will be available online at www.nass.usda.gov

  If they knew they would not have "accurate" information-and I use the word accurate VERY loose maybe they should have delayed the reporting due to circumstances?
