USDA Launches Production,
Supply, and Demand Database Site
WASHINGTON, Aug. 26, 2002
– The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) announced a new on-line database web
site that provides current and historical USDA data on production, supply and
distribution of agricultural commodities for the United States and key producing
and consuming countries.
The data, which goes back as
far as 1960, provides users with a complete global picture--all
commodity-specific attributes, countries and years are available. Users can view
all facets of the database onscreen
or download to a spreadsheet file. Pre-defined
tables categorized by commodity groups are readily available, or the user can
create custom queries for specific commodities. Example: Barley
Argentina 2001 2002
The site includes 108
commodity groups and over 190 countries. The information will be particularly
useful for commodity traders, agriculture importers, exporters, economists,
producers, and researchers who can use the information to determine future
prices, production levels, and demand for agricultural products.
The production, supply, and
demand database site can be found at Internet address:
