In the days ahead, NASS will mail its first Hemp Acreage and Production Survey. The survey, which will collect total planted and harvested area, yield, production, and value of hemp, was established by the 2018 Farm Bill. NASS said the survey will provide needed data about the hemp industry to assist producers, regulatory agencies, state governments, processors, and other key industry entities
“This new and topical survey may actually be the first opportunity for a producer to respond to a NASS survey. NASS safeguards the privacy of all respondents, by keeping all individual information confidential and publishing the data in aggregate form only to ensure that no operation or producer can be identified,” said Chris Mertz, director, Northwest Region. “We recognize that this is a hectic time for producers, but the information they provide helps U.S. agriculture remain viable and capable. I urge them to respond to these surveys and thank them for their cooperation.”
