Last month, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue unveiled Farmers.gov, the new interactive one-stop website for producers maintained by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Farmers.gov is now live and will have multiple features added over the coming months to allow agricultural producers to make appointments with USDA offices, file forms, and apply for USDA programs. The website gathers together the three agencies that comprise USDA’s Farm Production and Conservation (FPAC) mission area: the Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Risk Management Agency.
This month, the website launched its blog, which features stories from all three agencies including articles on crop insurance. Today, we kicked-off a special blog feature called Fridays on the Farm (#FOTF).
