To help farmers, ranchers and other interested parties keep up to date with implementation of the law, Secretary Veneman announced the creation of a one-stop website. It is integrated into the USDA home page and can be accessed at or by clicking on the 2002 farm bill logo on the USDA homepage.

Information is indexed by farm bill title and by agency. A sample of what’s to come includes a side-by-side comparison of the 1996 farm bill and the 2002 farm bill prepared by the Economic Research Service; fact sheets in English and Spanish; and instructions from the Farm Service Agency on base and yield updates.
