NASS again requesting harvest info from Upper Midwest farmers

Farmers in a handful of Midwestern states are once again being asked about production numbers this month as USDA works through its second recount of the 2019 season.

Great Lakes Regional Director for NASS Marlo Johnson tells Brownfield production numbers of corn and soybeans in Michigan, Wisconsin, and North Dakota, as well as corn numbers for Minnesota and South Dakota, are being reevaluated.

“We just want to go out and make sure that we have accounted for what was not planted at the time or was left in the field due to the weather.”

Soil moisture levels in those states have been the highest in the Midwest in recent months causing widespread harvest delays.

The USDA will be updating final 2019 production amounts if changes need to be made in the spring.
