U.S Department of Agriculture will release long-term agriculture projections
By Amanda Brodhagen, Farms.com
The U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that it will be releasing a new report providing a 10-year agriculture projection to 2022, which is scheduled to be released Monday, February 11, 2013 at 11:00 (EST). The release will be posted on the Office of the Chief Economist website.
The USDA publishes projections every year in February. The new projections will cover topics such as crop, livestock, commodities, agriculture trade, farm income, and food prices. These projections are not the regular USDA forecasts, but rather are assumptions based on a number of factors including farm policy, weather, the economy and other international factors.
