Statewide Iowa — Iowa farmers will NOT be seeing some USDA crop reports that would normally be released at this time of year.

USDA Chief Economist Rob Johansson says the reports that were set to be released on January 11th will be delayed because of the the partial government shutdown.

The delayed documents include the monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, crop production reports, grain stocks, and rice stocks. According to Johansson, it will take about a week to release the reports once funding resumes.

This hold-up is different than the delay in 2013 where USDA report data was missing. Johansson told Brownfield Ag News that is not the case this time, and the reports will be released as soon as possible.
