Due to delays in harvest progress this season, USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service will continue the weekly Crop Progress report beyond the last currently scheduled date of November. 25.
NASS will evaluate the harvest progress for all crops each week to determine how long to continue the report.
The agency has 12 regional offices throughout the United States and Puerto Rico and a headquarters unit in Washington, D.C.. NASS conducts hundreds of surveys and issues nearly 500 national reports each year on issues including agricultural production,
economics, demographics and the environment. NASS also conducts the United States Census of Agriculture every five years.
Producers, farm organizations, agribusinesses, media, markets and traders, lawmakers and government agencies all rely on the information produced by NASS.
