The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service will release 2021 floriculture estimates on May 25 at 3 pm Eastern.
The USDA has expanded the program to cover all 50 states and more than 30 new crops, according to a news release. Due to the large number of estimates being issued, the data will be released in the NASS Quick Stats database at quickstats.nass.usda.gov, the release said.
Changes with the document include:
- Beginning with the 2021 estimates, the top 28 states will be published individually with the remaining states combined into an "other states" total.
- Additional crops have been added to the program to increase coverage across all crop categories.
- Sales data will be published as retail, wholesale, and total, rather than the previous practice of converting non-wholesale prices to a wholesale equivalent.
