U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue recently 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, but 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 mission area: Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Risk Management Agency.
Farmers.gov is mobile device-friendly and can identify for farmers the most convenient USDA office locations. New functions will be added shortly, including an interactive calendar, farming success stories, an online appointment feature, digital forms, and a business data dashboard.
