Census of Agriculture and other farm-related reports delayed almost 2 months because of federal shutdown

Data from the 2017 Census of Agriculture has been delayed for almost two months because of the lapse of funding during the five week partial federal government shutdown.

"The National Agricultural Statistics Service said Wednesday that, assuming funding remains available for fiscal year 2019, it plans to release the 2017 Census of Agriculture at noon on April 11. The report was originally set to be unveiled at USDA’s annual Agricultural Outlook Forum Feb. 21," Steve Davies reports for Agri-Pulse.

NASS is also rescheduling the release of dozens of reports meant to be gathered and/or released during the shutdown, since the agency's Agricultural Statistics Board couldn't collect data during that time.
