USDA to Release Complete Set of Tables For Agricultural Projections to 2028

This article has been reprinted from the Feb. 14, USDA Grain Transportation Report.

On February 14, USDA will release the complete set of tables prepared for the upcoming USDA Agricultural Projections to 2028 report.

The new tables will include projections for farm income, U.S. fruits, nuts, vegetables supply and use, and global commodity trade.

On November 2, 2018, tables containing long-term supply, use, and price projections to 2028, for major U.S. crops and livestock products as well as supporting U.S. and international macroeconomic assumptions, were released.

USDA's long-term agricultural projections are developed through a consensus of departmental agencies and provide a long-term representative scenario of the agricultural sector, over the next decade.

The projections can be useful to agricultural shippers in anticipating future transportation demand patterns for agricultural products.

The tables will be in MS Excel format and posted to the USDA Office of the Chief Economist’s website.
