USDA Polishes Web Site

Farmers may soon be able to go to a single Web site to find everything they ever wanted know about the market outlook for corn, cotton, potatoes, or just about any other crop.

USDA is preparing a new Commodity Market Information System to bring together many sources of information from its various agencies in one place. The Commodity Market Information System will be up-to-date and searchable, providing user-friendly access to the more than 3,000 commodity-related reports USDA produces every year.

Visitors to the USDA Web site,, will begin to see a new design, which is the first phase in efforts to make the Web site more powerful and improve access to USDA information and science.
