A new website developed by the Department of Agriculture offers a one-stop-shop for farmers and ranchers to conduct business with USDA. While visiting Michigan Thursday, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue unveiled the website, Farmers.gov. USDA describes the website as a streamlined, single point of online access to agricultural programs and information, tools and personal advice for agriculture.
Perdue told the Michigan Farm Bureau the website will help producers complete paperwork “without taking a big chunk out of the day.” The website gathers together the three agencies of USDA’s Farm Production and Conservation mission area: The Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Risk Management Agency. USDA says new functions will be added soon, including an interactive calendar, an online appointment feature, digital forms, and a business data dashboard.
