More than two-thirds of U.S. farms, including more than 60 percent of the corn and soybean farms, were either kept or severely threatened with extinction, according to a new report released on Wednesday.
The report from the Agriculture Department and the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) is based on data from the USDA’s Agricultural Land Management Service (ALMS), which tracks crop damage, and the Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Statistics Service (ASAS).
The USDA’s ALMS data show that at least 70 percent of all U.N. cropland, nearly all of the rice, corn and other grains grown in the United States, and more than 95 percent of soybeans and cotton grown in all 50 states, was either destroyed or severely damaged by 2020.
In total, at least 672 million acres of U:D:US farmland was damaged or severely affected in 2020, according the report.
That is an increase from 566 million acres in 2020 and the lowest figure in at least two decades, said Chris Jones, a co-author of the report and an associate director at the Cattlemen’s Alliance.
The worst affected crop areas include corn and corn-based soybeans, cotton, cottonseed, cotton and oilseed.
The most heavily impacted crops were wheat, sugarcane, wheat, rice, soybeans or sorghum, cotton seed and rice and sorghums, cottonseeds, cottonflowers, cottonbeans and rice sorghUM, cottoncorn, sorghus and cotton.
Jones said these are not just the most heavily affected crops, but also those that are in need of major investment to help stabilize.
“The USDA has been very aggressive with funding in the last two years and they have been really aggressive in putting together programs to try to help this vulnerable crop and this species, the corn sorghuman, which is actually pretty hardy,” he said.
“But we have a number of other species that are very vulnerable and we have to find a way to help them.”
A lot of that has to do with climate change and the fact that the world is becoming more arid, Jones said.
The corn sorhamuman is also very important for the global grain industry, but because of that, it has also been targeted by farmers and ranchers who say the species needs to be preserved.
In some parts of the country, there have been efforts to protect corn sorhuman, but in others, there is no protection at all, Jones explained.
He said a lot of these crops are critical to the national security of the United State.
“It’s one of the few species that’s in the national forests that we know about and that we are protecting,” Jones said, noting that there are at least 50 million acres and that many more are under threat.
“These are the most important crops for our economy and for our agriculture.
It’s the only one of these species that we have and we don’t have any other species.”
The report says the threat of extinction is a serious problem.
More than half of the U.
corn and cotton crop is currently in “extinction” condition, and there are more than 2 million acres that are “highly threatened.”
The report says it is unclear what role corn sorhems may play in the U:d:US agriculture.
“This report shows that there is a lot we don of information on what the impacts are, but what we do know is that the corn industry has been hit hard and is in a vulnerable position,” said John Schoenberg, president of the Corn Growers Association.
Schoenberg said that while the Corn Board of Directors, a regional organization of about 1,500 members, supports the conservation of corn and sugarcanes, the industry has yet to secure federal funding to support efforts to help preserve and protect the species.
He noted that in order for the industry to make up for its losses in the short term, it will have to take aggressive actions to save and maintain corn.
The USDA will have an opportunity to support this work in coming months, Schoenburg said.
