Organic Production

National Agricultural Statistics Service NASS

This is an archive and email subscription service for reports issued by NASS. The official website is www.nass.usda.gov with other data services.


The organic reports provide acreage, production, and sales data for a variety of organic crop and livestock commodities as well as organic marketing and agricultural practices. The first organic survey was initiated in 2008 to support an emerging organic industry. The 2008 and 2014 organic surveys were conducted as part of the Census of Agriculture as a Special Study. These data collection efforts surveyed all known certified, exempt, and transitioning organic operations. The 2011 and 2015 organic surveys were conducted in cooperation with the USDA's Risk Management Agency in an effort to expand the number and variety of premium price elections for certified organic crops. The surveys in these years were restricted to only certified organic operations.

Results from all organic surveys as well as more information on the NASS Organic Program can be found here:
