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 www.usda.gov/farmbill 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.
