NASS Releases Updated Vegetable Chemical Usage Data

Issued December 20, 2011 by the Agricultural Statistics Board of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). For more information, contact Dale Hawks, 202-720-0684.

Today, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistical Service (NASS) will republish the 2010 Vegetable Chemical Usage data originally released on July 27, 2011. The updated information only corrects the previously published pesticide data estimates for garlic and tomato processing. These estimates update the chemical active ingredient “Glyphosate” published in California and the Program States data tables for the number of applications, rate per application, rate per crop year, and total applied.
