Agricultural Baseline Database

The agricultural baseline database provides 10-year projections for the annual USDA Agricultural Projections report, which is published in February each year.  The database covers current-year projections for major field crops (corn, sorghum, barley, oats, wheat, rice, soybeans, and upland cotton) and livestock (cattle, hogs, poultry and eggs, and dairy cattle).

  • Current year’s projections of select attributes: machine-readable .csv file plus readme.txt (.zip file)
  • Current and historical projections in table format by commodity (complete) housed in the Albert R. Mann Library at Cornell University (Includes additional projections for macroeconomic and farm policy assumptions, specialty crops, farm income, and agricultural trade.)*
  • Data visualization of select attributes of the current year’s projections with historical data
  • Annual USDA Agricultural Projections report

*Agricultural trade data not available in USDA Agricultural Projections to 2028 due to time constraints imposed by the government shutdown.
