USDA-NASS to visit farms across Missouri

Missouri

During the upcoming June Area Survey, the Missouri Field Office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service will be accounting for farm land throughout the state. As part of the nationwide survey, NASS representatives will be knocking on the doors of farmers who operate on selected tracts of land to collect information about their land uses and agricultural activities.

"The June Area Survey is one of the largest and most comprehensive surveys conducted each year by NASS," said Gene Danekas, director of the NASS Missouri Field Office. "By providing an in-depth look at land uses and agricultural activities, the survey provides the most timely, accurate and useful information on the current condition of U.S. agriculture."

"Understanding that the information we gather is only as good as the source it comes from, we are counting on the most reliable, frontline source of information for this survey--the producers themselves," added Danekas.

During the first two weeks of June, NASS representatives will visit randomly selected areas of land in Missouri and conduct personal interviews with the operators of any farm or ranch on that land. NASS will collect information on crop acreage, biotech crop acreage, grain stocks, livestock inventory, cash rents, land values, and value of sales.

The information from the June area survey will be used extensively by NASS in its ongoing survey and estimation programs. The survey provides direct data, or is a critical component, for a host of NASS reports, including: the monthly Crop Production report, annual Acreage report and inventory reports for cattle, hogs and pigs, and sheep and goats.

As with all NASS surveys, information provided by respondents is confidential by law. "NASS safeguards the confidentiality of all responses ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified," stated Danekas. All reports are available on the NASS web site: www.nass.usda.gov. For more information on NASS surveys and reports, call the NASS Missouri Field Office at (800) 551-1014.
