A Preliminary Look at Prevent Plant Acres

There are at least 6.38 million prevent plant acres in the United States this year. In a preliminary report released Monday, USDA says North Dakota has the most prevent plant acres in the country at 2.37 million. Compared to 2020, a big prevent plant year, it’s slightly lower. South Dakota’s prevent plant is more than 733,000 acres, fewer than total 2020 levels. Minnesota has more than 495,000 prevent plant acres. That’s more than the total prevent plant acres for the state in 2020. The final 2022 prevent plant data will be released in January 2023.
