COLLEGE STATION — Due to the lapse in federal government funding to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistic Service, commonly known as NASS, there will not be a Texas crop and weather report this week.

No Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service personnel positions have been furloughed. However, the weekly crop and weather report is jointly prepared by NASS and AgriLife Extension.

When funding is restored to NASS, the weekly report will resume. We regret the inconvenience. For other stories about Texas A&M AgriLife, see http://today.agrilife.org.
