The “Prospective Plantings” report provides the first official, survey-based estimates of U.S. farmers’ 2024 planting intentions, according to Charles Walker, New York state statistician of the National Agricultural Statistics Service. NASS acreage estimates are based on surveys conducted during the first two weeks of March from a sample of approximately 72,900 farm operators across the U.S.

Corn planted area for all purposes in 2024 is estimated at 1.03 million acres, down 1% from last year.
