Agricultural Long-term Projections

Each year, USDA agencies make long-term commodity projections used to prepare the President's budget and forecast farm program costs. The projections are released in February following release of the President's budget.

The World Agricultural Outlook Board chairs an Interagency Agricultural Projections Committee to coordinate this activity and improve the quality and consistency of projections. The Committee Chairperson, David Stallings, can be contacted at 202-720-5715.
