Full text of "North Carolina agricultural statistics"

Office of 

THE COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE 
Raleigh, North Carolina 





There was a time when North Carolina farmers lived off the food they grew and sold extra 
produce at roadside stands or door-to-door for added income. Back then produce raised in the state 
most likely stayed in the state. Today's farmers routinely ship products across the nation and 
overseas competing in a global market. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and 
Consumer Services actively promotes North Carolina products at local, national and international 
markets to help our farmers survive and thrive in todays economy. In just the last 10 years, cash 
receipts from North Carolina products have doubled, making it imperative we keep expanding our 
marketing base. Along with expanding markets we must continue to use new technology to improve 
agricultural production while keeping costs down and protecting our environment. Agriculture is 
North Carolina's number one industry, remaining the bedrock of our states economy throughout 
the years due to the agricultural community's progressive attitude toward embracing new 
technology, improving efficiency and diversifying production. All Divisions in the North Carolina 
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services reflect this attitude and are dedicated to 
improving agriculture, providing necessary services and protecting the natural resources of the state. 

The 1998 North Carolina Agricultural Statistics bulletin is just one example of the many services 
provided by the Department. The information in this publication is collected from farmers and 
agribusinesses throughout the state who willingly and voluntarily take their time to tell agriculture's story. 
I thank them for their commitment to agriculture and this program. Without these statistics it would be 
difficult to measure our accomplishments and even tougher to envision our future. I would also like to 
extend my sincere appreciation to the Agricultural Statistics staff for their dedicated work and especially 
the enumerators who work so close with the farming community. 




Cordially, 



James A. Graham 
Commissioner

Sweetpotatoes Number One — 
in North Carolina 

Traditionally, sweetpotatoes are enjoyed alongside 
the Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey in most American 
households. Whether baked with marshmallows or 
creamed with brown sugar, a holiday meal would simply 
not be complete without this sweet, rich vegetable. So 
why not have sweetpotatoes more often? 

Sweetpotatoes have been called "nature's health 
food" because they are rich in vitamins and minerals. 
Sweetpotatoes contain twice the daily recommended 
allowance of Vitamin A, 1/3 the daily requirement of Vitamin 
C, are high in Vitamin B-6, iron, potassium and fiber. Plus, 
since they are naturally fat and cholesterol free, they are a 
great addition to a healthy diet. 

The sweetpotato is a native crop to the Coastal Plains of 
North Carolina. In fact, American Indians were growing sweetpotatoes 
when Columbus discovered America in 1492. The sweetpotato is also 
native to the New World Tropics of Peru, Ecuador, Central and South Ameri- 
can countries dating as far back as 750 B.C. Some scientists even believe that 
dinosaurs may have enjoyed this delicious vegetable. By the 16th century explorers had carried sweet- 
potatoes to Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Guam and the Philippines. Soon people all over the 
world were enjoying the sweet vegetable. Shakespeare even made reference to sweetpotatoes in The Merry 
Wives of Windsor and Troilus and Cressida. 

Today, North Carolina leads the nation in sweetpotato production, growing approximately 32,000 
acres and making up nearly 40 percent of the total U.S. production. As a root crop, sweetpotatoes grow best 
in the sandy soil and temperate climate of the coastal plains. Johnston, Nash and Wilson are the top three 
North Carolina counties in terms of sweetpotato production. 

Sweetpotatoes are grown from May through October, but they are available year round. The 
harvest begins in late August and continues through early November. Some sweetpotatoes are immedi- 
ately washed and graded for sale. These are called the "green crop." Other crops are cured and stored until 
they are needed. "Cured" means the skin on the potatoes has tighten, the starches have turned to sugar, 
and the abrasions have healed. Compared to green stock, cured sweetpotatoes are sweeter and more 
resistant to skinning. Sweetpotatoes can be bought fresh, frozen, dehydrated or individually pressure 
wrapped. 

There are many different types of sweetpotatoes available. Texture, color, moisture and sweetness 
vary in each individual sweetpotato. The Beauregard, Carolina Rose, Carolina Ruby, NC Porto Rico 198, 
Hernandez and the Jewel are the types that can be found growing in North Carolina. 

The field cover photos were taken at Burch Farms in Faison, North Carolina. Burch Farms has been 
family owned and operated since 1950 and is a major North Carolina sweetpotato shipper. Burch Farms, as 
well as many other growers across the state are supported and promoted through the North Carolina 
SweetPotato Commission. Sweetpotato recipes, brochures, posters and other materials are available 
through the North Carolina SweetPotato Commission as well as the North Carolina Department of Agri- 
culture and Consumer Services. Or visit the sweetpotato web site at: http://www.agr.state.nc.us/markets/

Statistical Reports Program 



TVTORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS 
-L \l brings together the current and historic statistics 
concerning agriculture in the State. Where possible, in- 
formation most often requested by farmers, the general 
public, and workers in government agencies are in- 
cluded. 

Reporting of crop and livestock statistics is a 
service rendered to farmers and others in the State 
by the National Agricultural Statistics Service of the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture in cooperation with 
the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer 
Services. 

The collection and dissemination of agricultural 
statistics had its start in 1863. This is one of the oldest 
activities of the United States Department of Agricul- 
ture. It was recognized that there were many advan- 
tages of a joint relationship between the State and 
Federal Governments in the development of agricul- 
tural statistics. Thus, in 1919 the N.C. Department of 



Agriculture entered into a cooperative agreement 
with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide 
detailed agricultural statistics. The agreement resulted 
in the creation of the Agricultural Statistics Division of 
the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer 
Services 

The North Carolina Agricultural Statistics Division 
publishes official statistics on crops, livestock, 
prices, and various other agricultural items. A list of 
the most important reports and the approximate 
dates of release is shown in the table below. The 
reports marked with an (*) are issued separately. All 
others are included in the semi-monthly release 
entitled "Farm Report". The reports are free for res 
pondents providing information used to compile the 
reports. Others are charged a nominal fee for the 
reports, which are available by writing to: State Statisti- 
cian, P.O. Box 27767, Raleigh, NC 27611 or E-mail at:

North Carolina 1997 Annual Weather and Climate Summary 



The year began with temperatures well above normal 
and rainfall below average. Although precipitation was 
below normal, rainfall was enough to slow field prepara- 
tion. This weather pattern continued through January. 
February started cold and dry but warmed near the end 
of the month with enough rainfall to prevent fieldwork. 
These conditions were favorable for small grains. 

Localized freezing gave fruit growers a scare in mid- 
March, but freeze protection equipment prevented seri- 
ous damage. At months end some areas of the state were 
still hampered by surplus soil moisture, but the warm 
weather allowed farmers to prepare fields for spring 
plantings. April came and went with cooler temperatures 
and rainfall near normal. The unseasonably cold weather 
throughout the entire month caused light frost damage 
to fruit and vegetable crops in the mountain regions. 

May was cool but a busy month nonetheless. Below 
normal rainfall allowed farmers to get into the field and 
make significant planting progress. Virtually all the corn, 
cotton, peanuts and tobacco were planted by the end of 
May and soybean plantings were near the five year aver- 
age. Small grain harvest and hay cuttings were in full 
swing by the end of May. Farmers finished most crop 
plantings by the end of June. Weather conditions were 
mostly cool throughout June, but precipitation was 
scarce as soil moisture levels dwindled. 

Severe weather hit several areas of the state the first 
week of July, but storms were localized and crop damage 
was minimal. For the most part, conditions were typical 
for the entire month with weekly average temperatures 
near normal. However, some regions were becoming 



very dry. The month was punctuated by the remnants of 
Hurricane Danny causing some damage to crops in it's 
path, but overall the rainfall was encouraging to growers. 
The rains at the end of July became important as August 
turned hot and was one of the driest months on record. 
Widely scattered showers popped up as low pressure 
systems collided with the high pressure dome that cov- 
ered North Carolina and most of the southeast. How- 
ever, any precipitation was localized and field crops be- 
gan to show signs of reduced yield potential around mid- 
August and only got worse as the hot dry weather stretched 
to month's end. 

By the time September rolled around, there were fore- 
casts of major yield reductions due to the dry weather. 
However, rains came around the middle of the month, 
and late season crops responded in kind. October re- 
main-ed uneventful until the last week when significant 
rainfall moved across the state. Cotton along with newly 
planted small grains benefited from the precipitation. Moreover, 
much of the state experienced it's first killing frost. 

November saw steady rainfalls that slowed harvest 
progress and small grain plantings. Cotton, soybean, sor- 
ghum and sweetpotatoes harvest lagged due to wet fields. 
Below average temperatures throughout the month were 
observed and killing frosts hit the Old Belt as the tobacco 
markets were drawing to a close. Wet weather and mixed 
temperatures carried North Carolina through the end of 
the year. However, by the middle of December very little 
acreage was left to be harvested, and most of the small 
grains were seeded and beginning to emerge.

1997 North Carolina Crops Summary 



Flue-cured Tobacco Yield Near Record 

Flue-cured tobacco yield averaged 2,324 pounds per 
acre in 1997 and was the second highest yield on record. 
Harvested area, at 309,000 acres, represent a 10% increase 
over 1996. Subsequently, the additional acres and high yield 
translated into a 25% increase in flue-cured tobacco produc- 
tion totaling 718.1 million pounds. The value of the flue- 
cured crop totaled $1.2 billion, up 17% from 1996. 

Burley tobacco producers harvested 8,400 acres in 
1997, an 8% increase from 1996. The burley tobacco 
yield, at 1,585 pounds, was down 80 pounds as extremely 
dry weather affected the crop. Still, with the increase in 
acres, production increased 3% to 13.3 million pounds. Value 
of the crop was placed at $24.8 million compared to $24.9 
million in 1996. 

Cotton Production Declines 

The State's cotton crop totaled 930,000 bales in 1997, 
down 7% from last year but the second highest since 
the record production in 1926. Area harvested totaled 
665,000 acres, 6% below 1996. The yield per acre averag- 
ed 671 pounds, 6 pounds less than the previous year's 
average. The value of the crop was $299 million, 14% 
below 1996. Cottonseed production totaled 321,000 tons in 
1997, 6% lower than the previous year. Value of production 
was $37 million and averaged $114.00 per ton. 

Corn Output Decreases 

.The production of corn for grain in 1997 totaled 
77.4 million bushels, 9% below 1996. Tar Heel farmers 
harvested 870,000 acres with an average yield of 89 bushels 
per acre. This compares with 900,000 acres harvested in 1996 
which yielded 95 bushels per acre. The value of the crop 
totaled $228 million, down 22% from the previous year's 
crop. 

Soybean Production Up 

Soybean yield held steady from a year ago at 29 
bushels per acre. Harvested area totaled 1.33 million 
acres, 130,000 acres above the previous year. Production 
totaled 38.6 million bushels, up 11% from 1996. The value of 
production was placed at $258 million, 5% more than last 
year. 

Peanut Acres, Yield and Production Down 

Peanut growers produced a total of 329.1 million 
pounds in 1997, down 10% from 1996. Peanut growers 
could never recover from the extremely dry weather 
conditions that plagued them throughout the growing 
season. The State peanut yield, at 2,720 pounds, was 
down 220 pounds from 1996. Growers harvested 121,000 
acres, 4,000 fewer than a year ago. The value of the 1997 
crop was $87.9 million, 13% less than the 1996 crop. 

Record Wheat Production and Yield 

Wheat production in North Carolina, at 34.8 million 
bushels, set a record in 1997 and was up a dramatic 34% 
from 1996. The statewide yield of 52 bushels per acre was 
also a record and up 8 bushels per acre from the previous 
year. Total acres harvested, at 670,000, were up 14% from 
1996. The value of the crop totaled $111 million, 2% 
below a year earlier. 



Sweetpotato Yield Record High 

North Carolina sweetpotato production in 1997 
totaled 496 million pounds, up 14% from 1996. Harvest- 
ed area, at 31,000 acres, was the same as 1996. The average 
yield per acre was a record 16,000 pounds, up 2,000 
pounds from a year ago and up 500 pounds from the 
previous record set in 1994. 

Potato Crop Improves 

The production of Irish potatoes in North Carolina 
increased 2% in 1997 to 342 million pounds. Accompany- 
ing this increase in production was an increase in yield of 
1,000 pounds to 19,300 pounds per acre. Harvested acres 
were down 500 to 17,700. Value of production, at $22.6 
million, was down slightly from the 1996 crop. 

Weather Hurts Fruit Production 

A late spring freeze led to apple growers suffering 
one of their worst years ever in 1997. Commercial utilized 
production of apples in 1997 was 150 million pounds, down 
25% from 1996. This is the second lowest production level 
ever for apple growers. Only the 1986 crop was lower at 
120 million pounds. A short crop and low juice prices 
contributed to the decrease in total value of production to 
$16 million, 31% lower than 1996. 

A late spring freeze and residual damage from the 1996 
hurricanes also contributed to a reduction in production 
of blueberries in 1997. Growers produced 8.6 million 
pounds of blueberries in 1997, a 22% drop from 1996. The 
1997 crop was valued at $10.1 million.

Christmas Tree Inventory 34.2 Million, 1996 Sales Total $78 Million 



North Carolina's Christmas tree inventory in 1996 
is estimated at 34.2 million trees on 23,530 
acres. Ashe county led the state with 9.8 million trees on 
6,500 acres, followed by Avery with 7.9 million trees on 
5,100 acres and Alleghany with 6.5 million trees on 4,500 
acres. 

Of the estimated 1,600 Christmas tree growers, two- 
thirds have operations with less than 10 acres of trees, 
averaging 3 acres of trees per operation. The 60 largest 
growers, operations having 100 or more acres, account for 
51 percent of the Christmas tree inventory. The average 
Christmas tree operation in North Carolina has 15 acres 
of trees with 1,452 trees on each acre. 



The 1996 cash receipts from Christmas Trees 
totaled $78 million for North Carolina. Tree sales were 
valued at $72 million with wreaths, roping, and 
greenery valued at $6.0 million. The top 5 counties in 
sales were Ashe, Avery, Alleghany, Watauga and 
Jackson. These 5 counties accounted for 88 percent 
of North Carolina tree sales in 1996. 

Expectations for the 1997 cutting season showed grow- 
ers planning to sell 7 percent more trees than in 1996. A 
survey being conducted in 1998 will measure actual 1997 
sales and tree inventory by height groups.

The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services publishes annual county statistics for selected crops, 
livestock, poultry, dairy, and cash receipts. Census of Agriculture statistics are compiled by the United States Department of Commerce 
and are published every five years. Starting with the 1997 census, data will be published by the Department of Agriculture. 
Entries designated with an asterisk (*) were not published if there were fewer than 50 harvested acres of a specific crop, 500 hogs, 
200 beef or milk cows, 500 total cattle, 200,000 broilers, 300,000 turkeys, or 5,000 chickens in a county. Some counties were not 
published to avoid disclosing individual operations.
