Beginning Dec. 18 at 11 a.m., USDA will release selected commodity tables from its upcoming Agricultural Projections to 2024 report.
According to USDA, the tables will be posted online and contain long-term supply, use, and price projections to 2024 for major crops and livestock products, and will include supporting US and international macroeconomic assumptions.
The complete Agricultural Projections to 2024 report will be release as scheduled on Feb. 11, 2015.
The early-release tables will be posted to the Office of the Chief Economist's (OCE) website at www.usda.gov/oce.
USDA says the projections represent a departmental consensus on a long-term representative scenario for the agricultural sector for the next decade. The projections are based on specific assumptions about macroeconomic conditions, policy, weather, and international developments, with no domestic or external shocks to global agricultural markets.
