After Shutdown, Deluge of USDA Reports

Some 62 reports were delayed by shutdown

With the shutdown behind it, the USDA will begin today to clear out a month’s worth of backlogged data, including major reports that could jolt commodity markets and color farmers’ decisions on crops to plant this spring.

According to a report at Successful Farming, Chief Economist Robert Johansson said there will be one exception — the globe-spanning WASDE Report that serves as a monthly crop report for the world.

Some 62 reports that gauge U.S. farm production, foreign purchases of U.S commodities, the size of domestic stockpiles, and U.S. plantings of winter wheat were delayed by the shutdown, said AFBF Economist Veronica Nigh.
