2024 Acreage Forecast: Pulses Climb, Potatoes Decline

The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Acreage report, released on June 28, forecasts more planted acres for pulses in 2024, while potato acreage is set to decline. Year-over-year increases are projected in all four pulse classes, with lentils showing the largest rise. Lentil and chickpea acreage has increased across all surveyed States, and dry bean acreage has risen in nearly all surveyed States, with one State showing no change. In contrast, potato planted area is forecast to be 2 percent lower than in 2023, with declines expected in 10 of the 13 surveyed States.
