September 4, 2012 10:05 AM
 

The following are USDA's Crop Progress and Condition Report highlights for the week ended Sept. 2, 2012.

Released September 4, 2012, by the National Agricultural Statistics Service 
(NASS), Agricultural Statistics Board, United States Department of Agriculture.

Special Note

COMING SOON - NASS's annual September surveys on crops and 
livestock. In the first two weeks of September, NASS will survey 
U.S. small grains growers for final production.  We will also ask 
hog producers about their summer pig crop, current inventory, and 
farrowing intentions for the next six months. The responses will 
provide the foundation for 2012 production estimates. Farmers 
should watch for their survey and be sure to respond. Your 
information matters!
