Being in the farming business, I get these questionnaires from USDA about what I grew and how much of it. It's voluntary and nobody has ever asked if I reported correctly or even hassled me if I didn't report so I don't take their numbers very seriously. It might depend on just how busy the producer was when the questionnaires arrive whether they get answered or just disposed of.

So you don't think that they're accurate?
