FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture will be sending surveys to some 3,200 farmers in North Dakota to determine their plans for the upcoming growing season.

The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service conducts its March Agricultural Survey to provide the first survey-based estimates of North Dakota producers’ planting intentions for the year.

Statistician Darin Jantzi says the survey provides factual data that underpins projections, making it one of the most important surveys the service conducts each year. The statistics service will mail the survey questionnaire in February and compile and analyze the information for a March 31 release.
