US shut­down de­lays re­port

Tasmanian Country - - NEWS - - Weekly Times

A KEY crop re­port from the US won’t be pub­lished on time due to the par­tial US gov­ern­ment shut­down.

The US De­part­ment of Agri­cul­ture has con­firmed the monthly World Agri­cul­tural Sup­ply and De­mand Es­ti­mates re­port, set to be re­leased on Fri­day, would be de­layed.

While no new date has been set, the USDA said it would be sched­uled once gov­ern­ment fund­ing was re­stored.

The USDA said even if the shut­down ended im­me­di­ately, the agency’s staff wouldn’t have time to re­lease the re­ports as sched­uled.
