The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will extend its national reporting of crop progress by at least one week. The national Crop Progress report that is scheduled to be released at 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 14 will contain information only for corn and cotton crops. NASS will continue to monitor the harvest progress of these crops to determine if additional data collection and estimation are necessary after Dec. 14.
