Sandy forces USDA, companies to delay reports

Jeff Caldwell 10/29/2012 @ 3:10pm Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

The latest USDA-NASS Crop Progress report, usually released weekly at 3:00 p.m. CST each Monday, will be delayed on account of Hurricane Sandy's arrival and subsequent evacuations under way in major metropolitan areas in the northeastern U.S., including Washington, D.C.

No new release day or time has been announced but will be at a later date, a USDA report shows.

"The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) has delayed the October 29, 2012, releases of Rice Stocks, Peanut Stocks and Processing, and Crop Progress due to the hurricane-related closures of Washington, D.C., federal government offices," the report shows. "The rescheduled release times will be announced as soon as offices reopen."

USDA joined dozens of companies that were slated to release earnings reports Monday in the delay. Reports show the U.S. Labor Department is also considering postponing its latest employment report slated for release Friday due to expected lingering effects from the storm's movement through the Northeast.
