US: USDA sends hemp survey for second annual report

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) began sending out thousands of surveys to hemp farmers across the country on Thursday as part of its annual effort to learn about how the market has evolved since the crop was federally legalized under the 2018 Farm Bill.

USDA launched its first annual survey in 2021 and released a report detailing the results the following year. Now the questionnaire has been revised to “improve data quality and reduce respondent burden,” USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) said.

In general, the department is asking questions about plans for outdoor hemp production, acreage for operations, primary and secondary uses for the crop, and what kinds of prices producers are able to bring in. The questionnaire lists preparations such as smokeable hemp, extracts like CBD, grain for human consumption, fiber, and seeds as areas the department is interested in learning more about.
