NASS to measure 2009 small grains production


The 2009 harvest of small grains is complete and the U.S. Department of Agriculture will now measure U.S. farmers' final production of those grains, including wheat, oats, barley, and rye.

During the first two weeks of September, the Missouri Field Office of USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service will contact more than 2,000 producers statewide as part of the September Agricultural Survey. Results will provide the basis for official USDA estimates of 2009 acreage, yield, and production for small grains.

"This is the most important small grain surveys NASS conducts each year," explained Gene Danekas, Director of the NASS Missouri Field Office. "Not only will we be gathering final data on 2009 small grains production, but we'll also be collecting information on quantities of grains and oilseeds stored on farms statewide.

"Data from the September Agricultural Survey benefits farmers by providing timely and accurate information to help them make critical year-end marketing decisions and evaluate the success of the growing season," added Danekas.

NASS will contact selected Missouri producers by mail or telephone and ask them to provide information on their 2009 production and on-farm stocks of major commodities. As with all NASS surveys, information provided by respondents is confidential by law.

"NASS safeguards the privacy of all responses and publishes only state and national-level data, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified," Danekas said. Survey results will be published in several reports, including the annual Small Grains summary and the quarterly Grain Stocks report, both to be released on September 30.
