Description:
Abstract:
"Agricultural Chemical Usage, Field Crops Summary" contains state and U.S. fertilizer and pesticide use data for corn, cotton, peanuts, rice, sorghum, soybeans, wheat, fall potatoes. Includes pesticide use by active ingredient, application rates, and acres treated. Collection Organization: ERS and NASS Collection Methodology: The information presented is the result of a sample survey conducted for the crop year (end of harvest for previous crop through harvest of current crop). A random sample of fields was selected with probability proportional to size, using information, obtained earlier in the year, from two surveys of farm operators. Personal interviews were used to obtain the information. Chemical data were collected at the product level and converted to active ingredient for summarization. Collection Frequency: Annual survey. Update Characteristics: Dataset not updated. STATISTICAL INFORMATION: The data reside in one ASCII text file. LANGUAGE: English ACCESS/AVAILABILITY: Data Center: National Agricultural Statistics Service Dissemination Media: Diskette, Internet home page File Format: ASCII delimited Access Instructions: Call NASS at 1-800-999-6779 for historical series data available on diskette.
