NASS Late Season Survey
Bill Meyer is, Director of the Colorado Field Office of NASS
Meyer: “For the first two weeks of December we’ll be conducting our row crop and our late season crop survey. This is to get our final acreage yield and production numbers for corn, sorghum, hay. The later season crops that we have. We’ll be contacting about 1,500 producers in Colorado and we really encourage the help to return those. In addition to figuring out the state level yield and production numbers for those crops, it’s also used as part of our county estimate program. We publish those early in the spring next year. And we make it pretty easy to respond.
Meyer says the publication of the Annual Crop Production Report is set for January 10th. He says part of that survey is also a first look at the state’s winter wheat seedings. A look at how many acres were planted this year for harvest next fall. The wheat seedings report also comes out on January 10th.
