USDA NASS Survey Results Release

Chicago, Illinois – USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) today released the results of the 2015 Producer Survey which was designed to accurately reflect the nutrient management and conservation practices used for the state Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy (NLRS). The survey questions covered nutrient management strategies, cover crops, edge-of-field practices, use of soil tests, erosion management, and knowledge of certain NLRS components. Farmers were asked to respond based on crop years 2015 and 2011, which was selected as a base year.
