Weekly crop, weather reports available online
As Minnesota farmers prepare for the spring planting season, the Minnesota Field Office of the United States Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (USDA, NASS) is resuming its crop and weather reports. These weekly reports contain the latest summary information on crop progress, crop conditions and weather across the state.
The information is published jointly by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) and USDA, NASS. Similar reports are published in all 50 states, using data collected by a network of county-level reporters, typically extension agents and USDA employees.
The reports are posted on Mondays at 3:00 p.m. Central Daylight Time on the USDA, NASS/Minnesota Field Office webpage at http://www.nass.usda.gov/Statistics_by_State/Minnesota/Publications/Crop...
They are offered in both written and audio formats. A "Weekly Crop Report" link is also available on the MDA's home page at www.mda.state.mn.us under "In the Spotlight."
