Quick Stats (searchable database)

The Quick Stats database is the most comprehensive tool for accessing agricultural data published by NASS. Find and download agricultural statistics for every state and county in the United States.

You can also download Quick Stats data (*.gz). The data files are updated following each week day.

Visit the Quick Stats Tools page to see other available resources.

County Level Information

While Quick Stats is the best source of county level data from NASS, acreage and yield maps of county crop estimates are available. Click here to view County Maps.

Special Tabulations and Restricted Microdata

Special Tabulations and Restricted Microdata provides additional information on requesting and reviewing completed special tabulations and accessing restricted microdata.

Geospatial Data

CroplandCROS hosts the Cropland Data Layer (CDL). The app allows users to geolocate farms and map areas of interest. To aid users, the app features a user guide and instructional videos. CroplandCROS was developed in cooperation with the Agricultural Research Service.

Cropland Data Layers

VegScape is a geospatial data service, which offers automated updates of the vegetative condition at daily, weekly, and biweekly intervals. It delivers interactive vegetation indices that enable quantification of U.S. crop conditions for exploring, visualizing, querying, and disseminating via interactive maps. VegScape was developed in cooperation with the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems at George Mason University.

Crop Condition and Soil Moisture Analytics (Crop-CASMA) is a web-based geospatial application. It is designed to remotely sense geospatial soil moisture and vegetation index data derived from NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) missions to assess U.S. soil moisture condition and crop vegetation conditions. It is designed and developed by USDA-NASS and the Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems at George Mason University.

Crop Progress and Condition Gridded Layers are gridded geospatial datasets which are fully synthetic representations of confidential, county level data. These new data are available for U.S. corn and soybeans, and eventually cotton and wheat.

Crop Sequence Boundaries are field polygons, geospatial datasets that produces estimates of field boundaries, crop acreage, and crop rotations across the U.S. It uses satellite imagery with other public data over a set time frame. It was developed in cooperation with the Economic Research Service.

Disaster Analysis - USDA-NASS can now monitor agricultural disasters in near real-time and provide quantitative assessments using remotely sensed data and geospatial techniques. View disaster assessments in geospatial data format, reports, and metadata as available.

Land Use Strata for Selected States - The USDA-NASS area sampling frame delineates all parcels of land for the purpose of sampling. The area frame is constructed by visually interpreting satellite imagery to divide a state into stratification classes (strata) based on percent of land used in cultivation. View the most recent land use strata map for each state.
