USDA to Conduct Hemp Grower Survey
USAgNet - 01/06/2023
USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will send the Hemp Production and Disposition Inquiry to producers on January 19. This follows NASS’s 2021 Hemp Acreage and Production survey. Like the 2021 questionnaire, this year’s survey will
collect information on the total planted and harvested area, yield, production, and value of hemp in the United States in 2022.
NASS estimated the total value of hemp production at $824 million in 2021. Planted area for industrial hemp grown in the open for all utilizations in the United States totaled 54,152 acres. Area harvested for all utilizations totaled 33,480 acres. The total value of hemp production in Wisconsin was estimated at 816 thousand dollars. These and other statistics can be found in the 2021 National Hemp Report.
As defined in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill), the term “hemp” means the plant species Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant such as the seeds, all derivatives, and extracts with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis. The Domestic Hemp Production Program established in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) allows for the cultivation of hemp under certain conditions.
All information reported by individuals will be kept confidential, as required by federal law. NASS will publish the survey data April 19, 2023, on the NASS website at nass.usda.gov and in the NASS Quick Stats database at quickstats.nass.usda.gov.
