    PREFACE

    These track records of United States Crop Production were assembled to
    serve as a ready reference for data users. The track records are
    comprised of National level statistics for the principal crops in NASS'
    estimating program.
     
    The following data, as applicable, are presented for each of the crops:
     
      Historic estimates of acreage, yield, production, market year average
      price, and value.
     
      Comparisons of preliminary and final planted and harvested acreage estimates.
     
      Comparisons of production forecasts versus end-of-year and final production
      estimates.
     
      Commodity estimates for 1998 to current are not considered final until the
      next historical revision, therefore, the columns titled '% of final' are
      a percent of the latest published estimate.
     
    The crop estimating program reports on farmers' planting intentions,
    estimates of acreage actually planted and expected to be harvested, and
    forecasts of yield and production during the growing season. After the
    crops have been harvested, estimates of planted acreage, harvested
    acreage, yield, and production are made. 
                  
    Through the mid-year and other quarterly probability surveys,
    information is collected on acreage, yield, production, and grain stocks
    on farms. Surveys conducted between quarters are used to gather
    information on crop conditions and yields.
