October 20, 2011

Citing cuts in funding in fiscal year 2011 and the likelihood of additional decreases in fiscal year 2012, the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) announced Oct. 17 that it is decreasing the frequency of several data surveys and eliminating other reports altogether.

NASS eliminated 10 reports, including annual reports on farm numbers, land in farms and livestock operations; all catfish and trout reports; the mid-year cattle inventory report; the nursery report; the January sheep and goats report; and the annual bee and honey report.

The fruit and vegetable in-season forecast and estimates report, printed monthly and quarterly prior to the cutbacks, has been reduced to an annual report.
