USDA announces delayed report schedule

NASS and FAS offer timeline for rescheduled report following lapse in federal funding through January.

In a release Wednesday, the Agricultural Statistics Board of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) said it has begun rescheduling reports that were affected by the lapse in federal funding. During the government shutdown, NASS was not able to collect data or issue reports. USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) also announced the status on its weekly export sales reports.

With the government closed a total of 35 days, most of the reports are estimated to be three to four weeks late.
