The USDA will release new 10-year agricultural projections on Feb. 11, 2013, at 11:00 a.m. EST. USDA's Agricultural Projections to 2022 will be posted to the Office of the Chief Economist's (OCE) website at www.usda.gov/oce and available in MS Word and PDF formats. Projections data will be available as Excel spreadsheets here.

USDA publishes the projections each year in February. The projections are developed by interagency committees in USDA, with the Economic Research Service (ERS) having the lead role in the preparation of the report. The new projections cover crop and livestock commodities, agricultural trade and aggregate indicators, such as farm income and food prices, through 2022.

The projections do not represent a USDA forecast, but a conditional, long-run scenario based on specific assumptions about farm policy (including extension of current farm law through 2022), weather, the economy and international developments. Normal weather is assumed throughout the projection period.

Background on USDA's long-term projections and past issues of the report are available on the ERS website at http://www.ers.usda.gov/topics/farm-economy/agricultural-baseline-projections.aspx.
