USDA Foreign Agricultural Service Market and Trade Data

FAS’s PSD (Production, Supply and Distribution) Online data for those commodities published in the WASDE Report are reviewed and updated monthly by an interagency committee chaired by USDA’s World Agricultural Outlook Board (WAOB), and consisting of: the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), the Economic Research Service (ERS), the Farm Service Agency (FSA), and the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS). The international portion of the data is updated with input from agricultural attachés stationed at U.S. embassies around the world, FAS commodity analysts, and country and commodity analysts with ERS. The U.S. domestic component is updated with input from analysts in FAS, ERS, the National Agricultural Statistical Service, and FSA. Interagency work on the database is carried out under the aegis of the WAOB. The official USDA supply and use data is published monthly in: WAOB, World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE); in the foreign agricultural commodity circular series issued by FAS; and in the regional situation and outlook reports and monthly commodity newsletters of ERS (see keywords Crops and Animal Products) data for horticultural products are usually published twice a year.

The Organic INTEGRITY Database

The Organic INTEGRITY Database is a certified organic operations database that contains up-to-date and accurate information about operations that may and may not sell as organic, deterring fraud, increases supply chain transparency for buyers and sellers, and promotes market visibility for organic operations.

Data from: Secretome data from Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger cultivated in submerged and sequential fermentation methods

The cultivation procedure and the fungal strain applied for enzyme production may influence levels and profile of the proteins produced. The proteomic analysis data presented here provide critical information to compare proteins secreted by Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger when cultivated through submerged and sequential fermentation processes, using steam-explosion sugarcane bagasse as inducer for enzyme production.

Video data of flowers, fruitlets, and fruit in apple trees during the 2017 growing season at USDA-ARS-AFRS

This record contains videos of apple trees acquired from a ground vehicle throughout the growing season. Research in precision management methods in orchard crops revolve around locating objects of interest, namely flowers, fruitlets, and fruit, autonomously. This dataset is provided so that researchers without access to research plots or mature trees can experiment with the data acquired during the course of an ongoing project on apple flower estimation in images. The trees shown in these videos have a mixture of colors and growth habits. In particular, the four varieties represent one of each of the Lespinasse ideotypes.

Integrated Farm System Model (IFSM)

The Integrated Farm System Model (IFSM) is a process-based simulation of dairy, beef, and crop farming systems. This whole farm model provides a tool for evaluating the long term performance, economics, and environmental impacts of production systems over many years of weather.

A regionally-adapted implementation of conservation agriculture delivers rapid improvements to soil properties associated with crop yield stability

Maize and soybean yield data set for Precision Zonal Management (PZM) project from 2012-2015. Project compared chisel plow tillage against ridge tillage (PZM) systems, with and without winter cereal rye cover crops. Experimental sites in four US states: IL, MI, MN and PA. Data set provides plot-level yield data (kg/ha) for each site-year and for both crops. File also contains data set of maize and soybean yield stability, with soil properties measured in 2015 (end of experimental period) and delta values (values in 2015 minus values prior to experiment establishment in 2011).

AgAR (Agricultural Antibiotic Resistance)

An Environmental Component of a "One Health" approach, the mission of the Agricultural Antibiotic Resistance (AgAR) project is to

  • develop practical tools and protocols to measure antibiotic drugs, resistant bacteria and resistance genes in agriculturally-impacted soil, water, air, and food;
  • design and evaluate agricultural
