Full text of "North Carolina agricultural statistics"

Office of 

THE COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE 
Raleigh, North Carolina 




Agriculture has been the lifeblood of the North Carolina economy since this land was first settled and is 
currently experiencing depressing economic conditions. It has produced the bounty of life and created a way of 
life for generations of North Carolina farmers. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer 
Services is committed to serving agriculture and the public to preserve our agricultural heritage for the future 
and to insure a safe and nutritious food supply. 

North Carolina agriculture thrives because of its diverse nature as our farmers produce a wide variety of 
safe, wholesome commodities for consumers using the most efficient and environmentally friendly farming 
practices available. The cover of this publication illustrates this diversity, displaying a sampling of fruits and 
vegetables. 

The 1999 North Carolina Agricultural Statistics bulletin documents our most important commodities 
through voluntary reports collected from farmers and agribusinesses. Their time and effort to provide 
accurate, meaningful information is much appreciated and continues to be the best way to measure agriculture. 
I would also like to extend my appreciation to the field and telephone enumerators who collect the information 
from the farmers as well as the Agricultural Statistics staff for their dedicated efforts to produce these 
statistics. 



Cordially, _

I This year's cover features fruits and vegetables, "Fresh From North 
^\V\ Carolina Farms". Produce from North Carolina is marketed locally. 




nationally and internationally and has a reputation for high quality 
and freshness. The fruit and vegetable industry generates over 
i $300 million in annual farm income making it a major part of 
North Carolina's diverse agricultural industry. The produce 
industry is not only important to the state's economy but has 
national significance as well. North Carolina is the number one 
sweetpotato producing state, second in growing cucumbers for pickles, fourth 
in blueberry and strawberry production, seventh in producing watermelons, eighth 
in apple and peach output, and ninth in tomato production. 

As early as March and as late as December, greens are available in roadside stands, farmers' 
markets and grocery stores. Strawberry and cabbage harvests are underway in April followed 
by blueberries, cucumbers and squash in May. Most other North Carolina produce become 
available to consumers beginning in June. In the fall, apples, collards and pumpkins are 
the consumers choice for fresh produce. The long growing season and large variety of 
produce grown in the state makes North Carolina an ideal location to market fruits and 
vegetables to 65 percent of the United States population within 24 hours. 

The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services helps farmers and 
consumers with an array of services that ultimately gets the produce to market. Soil testing, 
nematode assessments, and plant/waste/solution analysis are provided by the Department to 
offer growers recommendations to improve agricultural efficiency and protect natural resources. 
The Department also does statewide inspections and chemical analyses to make sure our food 
supply is safe, wholesome and properly labeled. There are five regional marketing offices 
staffed with marketing specialists devoted to assisting farmers and developing promotions to 
market North Carolina produce. The Department also operates five fanners' markets and 
supports the efforts of over 80 community farmers' markets across the state. The Department 
provides grading and inspection services for many of these commodities. Daily 
wholesale price information is another service available through the 
Department to help growers market their produce. Research is also 
conducted to develop and improve agronomic products and develop 
better farm management practices. The Department also distributes 
food to schools, food banks, disaster relief agencies and charitable 
institutions. 

The next time you purchase fruit or vegetables, support your local 
farmer and make sure your produce is "Fresh From North Carolina 
Farms."

Statistical Reports Program 



NORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS 
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 included. 

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. The most impor- 
tant reports and the approximate dates of release are 
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 respondents providing information 
used to compile the reports. Others are charged a 
nominal fee for the reports, which are available by 
writing to: State Statistician, P.O. Box 27767, Raleigh, 
NC 27611 or E-mail at: ncagstat(« ncmail.net

North Carolina 1998 Annual Weather and Climate Summary 



The year began with slightly warmer than average tem- 
peratures after 1997 ended with precipitation in the 
form of both snow and rain. Small grains looked mostly 
good throughout the State as wheat was over 90% emerged, 
and soil moisture levels were adequate to surplus. Janu- 
ary and February were wet months but otherwise uneventful. 
Farmers took advantage of breaks in the weather to ac- 
complish fieldwork, but most of the activities took place 
indoors. Heading into March, soils were saturated in many 
areas, but the planting season was on track for speciality 
crops like cabbage and Irish potatoes. The middle of March 
was marked by severe weather and below normal tem- 
peratures. Tornadoes touched down in many areas, and 
Rockingham county was declared a federal disaster area. 
Some of the State's peach crop, in it's blooming and petal 
dropping stages, sustained damage. March ended with 
drier weather that allowed farmers to catch up on field 
preparation. 

April began with above normal temperatures and con- 
tinued rainfall as corn planting was just starting. April 
proceeded with well above average rainfall, but tempera- 
tures varied from normal to cool. Heading into May, most 
areas had above normal rainfall which left corn planting 
about a week to ten days behind schedule. Tobacco set- 
ting and cotton planting were lagging by a few days, and 
peanut and soybean plantings were just starting. Several 
strong storms rolled through the State, followed by dry 
weather during the middle of May. By the end of May, 
corn and cotton plantings, and flue-cured tobacco set- 
tings were nearing completion. Corn was almost fully 
emerged, peanuts were over 80% planted, and almost 
half of the soybeans were planted. All commodities 
were in mostly good condition. 

June began with rainfall above average and tempera- 
tures near normal. The first week of June was significant 
because it was the last week, statewide, that above nor- 
mal rainfall was received until the last week of August. 
All crop conditions were still mostly good. June contin- 
ued with isolated rainfall that was often accompanied by 
severe weather. There were some reports of hail damage 
toward the second half of the month, but overall, June 
was hot, humid and dry. The area of high pressure that 
settled over much of the southeast during the last week of 
June would not budge throughout July. Conditions were 
favorable for afternoon thundershowers, but rainfall was 



widely scattered. By the 4 th of July, crop conditions were 
trending downward. Almost all of the small grains were 
harvested well ahead of their five-year averages as the 
weather was favorable for fieldwork. As July advanced, 
symptoms of drought began to show up in many crops, 
especially corn. In the major corn growing areas, rainfall 
was negligible during the critical silk and dough stages. 
July concluded with most of the corn silked and doughed, 
cotton squared, tobacco topped and peanuts pegged. With 
the exception of peanuts, all crop conditions were less 
than good and slipping toward poor. August came and 
went with near normal temperatures and below normal 
precipitation. The last week of August finally brought 
significant rainfall with nearly two inches statewide. 
However, that rainfall was accompanied by Hurricane 
Bonnie which made landfall and methodically worked 
her way up the coast without losing much strength. This 
turned out to be the straw that broke the camel's back for 
North Carolina's corn crop. Bonnie dumped over 15 
inches in some areas and her high winds knocked 
down crops all over the Coastal Plain. Fortunately, the 
hurricane turned back to the northeast and the inner half 
of the State only experienced wind gusts, but got benefi- 
cial rainfall. On the Mountain side of the State, dry weather 
continued, and water supply levels became a concern. 

In September, Hurricane Bonnie gave way to remnants 
of Hurricane Earl, which brought soaking rains to the 
eastern part of North Carolina. Dry weather took over for 
the rest of September and was advantageous for harvest- 
ing. By month's end, harvest of the corn and tobacco crops 
were nearly finished and cotton and peanuts were begin- 
ning. The first full week of October was wet, but then 
turned dry, and by Halloween soil moisture levels for the 
State were over 80% short or very short. Harvest was well 
ahead of schedule for all late season crops as were small 
grain seedings. November was warm and dry allowing 
farmers to finish most of their harvesting a week or more 
ahead of the five-year average. By December only limited 
soybean acreage remained in the field, and almost all small 
grains were seeded and emerged. Soil moisture was still a 
major concern, and by the middle of December all report- 
ing stations had well below normal precipitation amounts 
for the harvest season, some as much as ten inches. The 
year ended with below normal precipitation and above 
normal temperatures.

Fertilizer Tonnage Down 



The total amount of fertilizer, including lime and 
gypsum, shipped in North Carolina during the 
July 1, 1997 - June 30, 1998 year fell 2.5% from last year to 
2.91 million tons. The decrease is attributed to a 16% drop 
in fertilizer shipments which was largely caused by wet 
weather and a reduction in tobacco quotas. Lime ton- 
nage shipments totaled nearly 1.1 million tons, an in- 
crease of 22% from the same period a year ago. Gypsum 
shipments, at 152,537 tons, increased 51% from last year. 

This is the first year a revised fertilizer regulation 
takes effect that no longer requires companies to report 
by grade and county. Instead, fertilizer is broken down 
into the following categories: Dry Materials, Mixed 
Materials, Other Dry Materials, Bagged Products, Fluid 
Materials, Mixed Fluid Materials, and Other Fluid Mate- 
rials. Dry and Fluid Materials include any substance con- 



taining either nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, or any 
other recognized plant food element or compound which 
is used primarily for its plant food content or for com- 
pounding mixed fertilizers. Not included in this defini- 
tion are all types of unmanipulated animal and vegetable 
manures and mulches for which no plant food content is 
claimed. Mixed Dry Products and Mixed Fluid Products 
include products resulting from the combination, mix- 
ture, or simultaneous application of two or more fertil- 
izer materials for use in plant growth. Other Dry Prod- 
ucts and Other Fluid Products include micronutrient 
supplements and organic materials. Bagged Products in- 
clude any fertilizer product that is sold in package form. 
Total Dry Products accounted for 43% of the total fertil- 
izer. Bagged Products accounted for 23%, and total Fluid 
Products accounted for 34%.

1998 North Carolina Crops Summary 



Flue-cured Tobacco Production Down 

In spite of the sporadic weather, flue-cured tobacco growers 
managed to stave off the hurricane damage and the persis- 
tent dry weather to achieve a solid overall yield of 2,222 
pounds per acre. This was 72 pounds lower than 1997, but 
177 pounds higher than the 1996 yield. Growers harvested 
243,000 acres, 70,000 less than 1997. This resulted in the 
production of 540 million pounds, down 25% from a year 
ago. The value of the flue-cured crop totaled $955 million 
dollars, down 23% from 1997. 

Burley tobacco producers harvested 8,100 acres in 1998, 
a 4% decrease from 1997. Yield, at 1,450 pounds, was down 
135 pounds. Growers, for the second year in a row, 
suffered through extremely dry weather throughout the 
growing season. Production, at 11.7 million pounds, repre- 
sents a decrease of 12% from 1997. Value of the crop was 
placed at $22.3 million compared to $24.8 million in 1997. 

Cotton Production Increases 

The State's cotton crop totaled 1.03 million bales in 1998, 
up 10% from 1997, and the highest since the record setting 
1926 crop. Area harvested totaled 705,000 acres, 3% above 
1997. Yield per acre averaged 699 pounds, 47 pounds more 
than the previous year's average. The value of the crop was 
over $338 million, 15% above 1997. The average price was 
68.7 cents per pound, compared with 65.9 cents per pound 
received in 1997. Cottonseed production totaled 351,000 tons 
in 1998, 9% higher than the previous year. Value of cotton- 
seed production was $40 million, up $3 million from 1997, 
and averaged $114.00 per ton, the same as the previous 
year. 

Soybeans Down Slightly 

North Carolina soybean yield averaged 27 bushels per 
acre, 2 bushels per acre less than a year ago. Production 
totaled 38.2 million bushels, down only 365,000 bushels from 
the 1997 crop. Harvested area totaled 1.42 million acres, 85,000 
acres above the previous year. The value of production was 
placed at $206 million, 20% less than 1997. Farmers received 
an average price of $5.40 per bushel, $1.28 per bushel below 
1997 and the second lowest price in ten years. 

Corn Production Decreases Dramatically 

The production of corn for grain in 1998 totaled 53.9 
million bushels, down an enormous 30% from last year. 
Corn production for 1998 was the lowest since 1952. The 
tremendous decrease was due to less acreage and a stressful 
year that decreased yields. Tar Heel farmers harvested 770,000 
acres with an average yield of 70 bushels per acre. This 
compares with 870,000 acres harvested in 1997 when yields 
averaged 89 bushels per acre. The value of the crop totaled 
just over $121 million, down 45% from 1997 and the lowest 
since 1971. The average price, at $2.25 per bushel, was down 
58 cents from 1997, $1.18 from 1996, and the lowest in ten 
years. 

Peanut Yield Highest in U.S. 

North Carolina peanut growers experienced near per- 
fect conditions in 1998 to achieve the highest yield in the 
country. Growers started the season with above average 
soil moisture, received a moisture boost midway through 
the season from Hurricane Bonnie, then had warm, dry days 
and cool nights to carry them through harvest. This resulted 
in a peanut yield of 3,190 pounds per acre, 510 pounds higher 
than 1997. Growers harvested 124,500 acres in 1998, up 1% 
from 1997. This translated into production totaling 397.2 mil- 
lion pounds, up 20% from a year ago. The value of the 1998 
crop was $94.1 million, 3% more than the 1997 crop. The 
market year average price for 1998 was 23.7 cents per pound. 



Wheat Yield and Production Down 

Although North Carolina's 1998 harvested wheat acre- 
age increased 1% from 1997 to 680,000, yield decreased to 
41 bushels per acre from 51 bushels in 1997. Production, at 
27.9 million bushels, was 18% below a year ago. Price per 
bushel of wheat was $2.55, 65 cents below last year. Total 
value of the crop decreased to $71.1 million, 35% below 
1997. 

Sweetpotato Yield at Record High 

North Carolina sweetpotato production in 1998 totaled 
544 million pounds, up 10% from 1997. Harvested area, at 
32,000 acres, was up 1,000 from a year earlier. Average yield 
per acre is estimated at a record 17,000 pounds, up 1,000 
pounds from the previous record set a year ago. The sweet- 
potato crop is valued at $59.8 million, up 12% from 1997. 
The average price, at 11 cents per pound, is 0.2 cent above 
last year. 

Potato Production Up Slightly 

Irish potato production in North Carolina increased 1% 
in 1998 to 343 million pounds. The average yield of 18,400 
pounds per acre equaled 1997. Harvested acres, at 18,600, 
were up 100 acres from last year. Value of production, at 
$21.1 million, is down 6% from the 1997 crop. Average price 
at 6.15 cents per pound, compared to 6.60 cents per pound 
in 1997. 

Vegetable Production Mixed 

North Carolina production of processed cucumbers 
totaled 78,750 tons, 9% more than 1997. The value of the 
crop is placed at $17.3 million. Fresh market cucumber pro- 
duction totaled 75 million pounds, up 14% from a year ear- 
lier. Value of production totaled $10.1 million, up 53% from 
1997. Tomato growers produced 61.6 million pounds of 
tomatoes, 3% more than 1997. The value of the crop is esti- 
mated at $16.6 million. Strawberry farmers produced 20 
million pounds of strawberries in 1998, up 11% from the 
previous year. The value of the crop is estimated at $15.0 
million. All cabbage production totaled 148 million pounds, 
13% less than 1997. The value of the crop is placed at $14.1 
million. Bell pepper production is estimated at 45.6 million 
pounds, 31% below 1997. The crop is valued at $10.9 mil- 
lion. Producers harvested 144 million pounds of watermel- 
ons, a 13% increase from a year ago. The value of the crop 
is set at $8.2 million. Sweet corn production, at 59.4 million 
pounds, is valued at $8 million. Snap beans harvested are 
estimated at 26.4 million pounds, down 10% from last year. 
The value of production is estimated at $7.9 million. 

Fruit Production Up 

Total apple production for 1998 was 185 million pounds, 
up 22% from 1997, but commercial utilized production was 
only 135 million pounds, down 10% from last year as large 
blocks of apples were left unharvested because of low prices. 
The value of production from the crop was $14.9 million, 
9% less than 1997. 

Blueberry growers rebounded from the disappointing 
1997 crop to produce a total of 15 million pounds of blue- 
berries in 1998, a 74% increase from 1997. Utilized produc- 
tion was 14.2 million pounds as growers experienced ex- 
tremely high temperatures at harvest time and were unable 
to pick nearly a million pounds of the rapidly ripening fruit. 
The 1998 crop was valued at $13 million. 

North Carolina peach production in 1998 totaled 25 mil- 
lion pounds compared to 10 million in 1997. The crop is 
valued at $9.5 million, up from $3.5 million last year. Aver- 
age price received, at 38 cents per pound, compares with 35 
cents per pound in 1997.

1998 North Carolina Livestock Summary 



Cash Receipts Decrease 

Cash receipts from all livestock, dairy, and poultry 
products decreased to $3.9 billion in 1998, down 17% from 
1997. Hogs took the big hit in 1998, dropping 36% from 1997 
to $1.3 billion. Cattle was next, dropping 28% to $154 million, 
followed by turkeys which decreased 11%. Eggs also dropped 
$14 million to $189 million, and sheep dropped 13%. On the 
plus side, broilers led with an increase of $47 million totaling 
$1.4 billion. Receipts from milk were up 8%. to $209 million. 
Catfish and trout sales increased 10% to $10.8 million. Honey 
sales went up 18%. 

Broilers are the number one commodity in the state with 
19.8%. of total sales, followed by hogs at 18.5%. 

Hog Cash Receipts Drop 

Cash receipts from the marketing of North Carolina hogs 
and pigs dropped 36% to $1.32 billion in 1998 primarily as a 
result of a $19.10 per cwt decline in the price received by 
producers. This huge decline dropped hogs to the number two 
commodity in the state behind broilers. The number of hog 
marketings for the year increased 4% from 1997 to 17.6 million 
head. However, much of the increase was in early weaned pigs 
shipped out of state. Thus, pork production for the year 
actually declined 2% to 3.8 billion pounds. 

Inventory of hogs and pigs on December 1, 1998 totaled 9.7 
million head, up 1% from 1997. The inventory was down 6% 
from the all time high inventory of 10.3 million head on 
September 1, 1998. A crop of 18.7 million pigs was produced in 
the state during the year, another record high, and 3%. above 
the 18.1 million produced in 1997. The average liter size 
dropped slightly in 1998 to 8.81 pigs. The value of home 
consumption was down 30% to $1.9 million. About two-thirds 
of the states hogs and pigs are under contract compared to 23% 
for the nation. Under contract is defined as owned by large 
operators, but raised by contractees. 

Broiler Income Record High 

Broiler income for the state continued to rise in 1998 and 
totaled $1.4 billion, up 3% from last year's record. Production 
decreased 2% to 3.6 billion pounds, but price per pound 
reached a record high 39.5 cents per pound in 1998, up 5% 
from last year. North Carolina is ranked fourth in the nation 
in broiler production with a total of 653 million birds, down 
2% from 1997. 

Turkey Numbers Decline 

North Carolina retained the number one ranking in turkey 
production in 1998 with a total of 1.3 billion pounds, down 6% 
from the previous year. The number of turkeys raised totaled 
50 million in 1998, down 7% from last year. Turkey price per 
pound decreased 2 cents to 37 cents allowing cash receipts to 
fall to $470 million, 11% below last year. 

Egg Receipts Down 

The value of egg production in North Carolina decreased 
7% in 1998 to $189 million. Price per dozen increased 2% from 
the previous year to 89.0 cents. The number of eggs produced 
declined 9% to 2.6 billion. The state ranks tenth nationally in 
the value of egg production. 



Milk Receipts Higher 

During 1998, cash receipts from marketing of milk and 
cream produced in North Carolina rose 8% from 1997 to 
$209 million. The increase was made possible by a 12% increase 
in the price received, averaging $16.90 per hundred weight. 

Output per cow rose 2% to 16,800 pounds in 1998 helping 
to offset the 5% decline in milk cow numbers, averaging 
75,000 head. Thus, milk production fell 3% in 1998 to 1.26 
billion pounds. 

Cattle and Calf Marketings Decline 

Cattle and calf marketings decreased 27% to 206,000 
head, and 189,000 respectively in 1998. Calf births rose 2% 
to 450,000 head. Inventory of cattle and calves in North 
Carolina as of January 1, 1999, at 980,000 head, was up 2% 
from the previous year. 

Cash receipts from cattle and calves totaled $154 million, 
down 28% from 1997. Fewer marketings and slightly lower 
prices accounted for the decrease in cash receipts. Cattle 
and calf prices per cwt. were $50.10 and $72.40 respectively. 
The value of home consumption decreased 11% in 1998 to 
$7.7 million. 

Trout Sales Up 

North Carolina's commercial trout growers sold a total 
of 4.8 million pounds of trout (foodsize, stockers, and 
fingerlings) during the 12 month period of September 1, 1997 
to August 31, 1998. Trout sales were valued at $8.4 million, 
up 10% from the previous year. The state ranks second in 
the nation in trout sales. 

Foodsize value of sales increased 8%. to $5.8 million 
and averaged $1.63 per pound, 43 cents above the previous 
year. Sales to processors accounted for 42% of foodsize 
sales with 39% going to restaurants and retail outlets, another 
11% going to live haulers, 1% to other producers, 2% to fee and 
recreational fishing, and 5% directly to consumers. Trout 
losses totaled 268,000 pounds for the year with 59% lost to 
disease, 21% to droughts, and the balance to predators, 
chemicals, flood, and theft. 

Catfish Sales Up 

The 45 commercial catfish growers in North Carolina 
had sales of $2.4 million in 1998, up 11% from the $2.2 
million the previous year. The water surface area used for 
the 1998 catfish production totaled 1,210 acres, down 90 acres 
from the previous year. Ninety two percent of foodsize 
catfish sales went to processors with the remainder going to 
restaurants and other outlets. The average price received 
for foodsize catfish in North Carolina was 76 cents per 
pound, up 1 cent from the previous year's average and 2 
cents above the national average. North Carolina producers 
received slightly more per pound for their fish than the 
producers in the leading producing states of Mississippi, 
Alabama, and Arkansas. 

Sheep Prices Decline 

North Carolina sheep and lamb prices at $30.00 and 
$78.60 per cwt., went down 17% and 15% respectively in 1998. 
Thus, cash receipts decreased 13% in 1998, dropping to 
$476,000. Marketings decreased less than 1% from 1997 to 
639,000 pounds. 

Sheep and lamb inventory on January 1, 1999 increased 
4% to 14,500 head from the previous year. The 1998 lamb 
crop increased 3% to 10,600 head.

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 and published every five years. Counties 
not harvesting more than 5 acres of tobacco or peanuts, 100 acres of sorghum or cotton, and 200 acres of all other crops were 
not published and are designated by an asterisk (*). Also not published were counties with fewer than 1,000 hogs, 500 total 
cattle, 200 beef or milk cows, 500,000 broilers, 500,000 turkeys, or 140,000 other chickens. Some counties were not published to 
avoid disclosing individual operations.
