The U.S. Department of Agriculture will be fanning out across Nebraska next month to collect crop information on this year's harvest.

The USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service will spend the first two weeks of June surveying thousands of Nebraska farmers to peg the number of acres, what crops have been planted and are in storage.

The agriculture survey is done online, by mail or by phone. The area survey involves randomly selected tracts of land and interviews with farmers and ranchers.

Dan Groskurth is director of the NASS Nebraska Field Office. He says the information is a critical part of several national reports, including the annual acreage report and a quarterly grain stocks report to be released on June 29.
