    Introduction
    This publication is the result of an October survey conducted by the USDA's North Dakota Agricultural Statistics Service. Over 1,800 reports from farmers and ranchers, elevators, custom harvesters, and other custom operators were tabulated. The survey is designed to provide state and regional averages of custom work rates. The late season survey has been conducted every three years since 1962, except during 1980 - 1986 when it was conducted every other year.

    Appreciation is expressed to all survey participants who provided the data for this report and also to North Dakota State University Extension Service personnel for their assistance on this project. Funding was provided by the North Dakota State University Experiment Station and Extension Service.

    The Data
    This report contains state and regional level custom work rates for harvesting, drying and hauling crops, seed preparation, hauling hay and livestock, and other custom work for fall operations.

    Included for each operation are the number of reports, the range in rates, the most frequently reported rate, and the
    average rate. Also included are state level 1998 average rates, 2001 rates as a percent of 1998 and historical comparisons back to 1980 for selected operations. Regional averages are reported where there were a sufficient number of reports. We advise the reader to exercise discretion when using rates where less than fifteen reports were tabulated. The abbreviation "D" represents not published to avoid disclosing individual data.

    The ranges show the minimum and maximum for each custom operation. The range is affected by the locality of the reporter and the size of the custom operator. A farmer/rancher who does a small amount of custom work for their neighbors may charge less than a large-scale operator. No adjustments are made for this or any other special circumstances.

    Several new questions were added to this year's survey. Respondents were given the option to report rental rates for pull type or self-propelled swathers. We also asked custom rates for mowing/clipping CRP.

    The rates in this report are averages, not estimates. They include the charges for equipment, power, fuel, and the operator. Exchange work was not considered custom work for this survey.
