  • USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service last week released new 2012 Census of Agriculture profiles for the 50 states, Puerto Rico and more than 3,000 counties in the nation.

    NASS Administrator Joseph Reilly says the state and county profiles provide snapshots of agriculture by highlighting key data from the 2012 Census of Ag.

    Reilly says census information is heavily relied on at the local level and is an excellent resource for anyone searching for data about farmers and agriculture production in their community.

  • President Obama has announced a series of executive actions to reduce carbon pollution, prepare the U.S. for the impacts of climate change and lead international efforts to address global climate change.

    The three West Coast governors and the Premier of British Columbia, representing the Pacific Coast Collaborative, said the proposal would achieve meaningful greenhouse gas reductions from existing power plants, the nation’s largest source of heat-trapping emissions.

    At the same time, they said, it will allow the states flexibility to build on programs and partnerships that are already protecting public health, saving consumers money and spurring innovation in cleaner, safer energy.
