USDA to Survey Growers on Hemp Acreage and Production
In October, the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service will mail its first Hemp Acreage and Production Survey.
The survey will collect information on the total planted and harvested area, yield, production, and value of hemp in the United States.
The Domestic Hemp Production Program established in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) allows for the cultivation of hemp under certain conditions. The Hemp Acreage and Production survey will provide needed data about the hemp industry to assist producers, regulatory agencies, state governments, processors, and other key industry entities.
Producers will be able to complete the survey online or they may complete and return the survey by mail using the return envelope that will be provided.
Results from the Hemp Acreage and Production survey will be available on the NASS website.
