ERS releases farm income statement and balance sheet estimates and forecasts three times a year, including February, August and November. These core statistical indicators provide guidance to policy makers, lenders, commodity organizations, farmers, and others interested in the financial status of the farm economy. ERS' farm income statistics also inform the computation of agriculture's contribution to the gross domestic product of the U.S. economy.

During this webinar, economist Carrie Litkowski provided the August forecast for 2017 as well as first estimates for 2016. See the latest Farm Income Forecast.
