USDA delaying crop reports during shutdown

USDA delaying crop reports during shutdown

Posted: Updated:

The USDA is delaying key crop reports because of the partial government shutdown.

This announcement leaves investors and farmers without crucial information during an already tumultuous time for ag markets, amid the uncertainty of trade with China.

The reports were scheduled to be released January 11. Now the USDA indicates even if the shutdown were to end now, the agency would not have time to release the reports.

According to some grain market analysts, the situation could worsen if the shutdown continues.
