S.D. County-Level Commodity Estimates Released
South Dakota Ag Connection - 03/22/2019
County-level estimates for 2018 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 at 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 Thursday include corn, sorghum, soybeans, and sunflowers. County-level estimates for hay will be published in April.
