The U.S. Department of Agriculture's putting a shout out to North Dakota
farmers about two important surveys to be done, starting next week.
They are the June Area Survey and the June Agricultural Survey.
For the June Area Survey, National Agricultural Statistics Service
representatives will visit randomly selected tracts of land and interview the
farmers or ranchers on that land. The questions to be asked include crop
acreage, grain stocks, livestock, cash rents, land values, and value of sales.
The June Agricultural Survey is done online, by mail, or by phone.
The information collected is a critical component of several important
national reports, including the annual Acreage report and the quarterly Grain
Stocks report. Both of those will be released June 28th.
