ASB Notice

National Agricultural Statistics Service's April 16 Reports Are Delayed

Issued April 16, 2012 by the Agricultural Statistics Board of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service.

Release of today's regularly scheduled 4:00 p.m. weekly Crop Progress report as well as the 3:00 p.m. Turkey Hatchery, Hatchery Production Annual Summary, and Potato Stocks reports from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Board (ASB) are delayed. We expect to release the reports tomorrow, Tuesday April 17, at their previously scheduled times.

The delay is a result of power and server outages in the USDA Washington, DC headquarters affecting National Agricultural Statistics Service offices across the country. If there are any changes in the revised release schedule, the ASB will issue an official public notice in advance of the release time.
