WASHINGTON – Just one day after President Bush signed the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 into law, the USDA launched a new Web site aimed at helping farmers, ranchers and the general public learn the latest information about the new farm bill.

The Web site can be accessed from USDA’s official Web site at www.usda.gov/farmbill or by clicking on the 2002 Farm Bill icon on USDA’s main Web site, www.usda.gov.

The new Web site will include farm bill program details, questions and answers, program applications and sign-up forms, as well as other information from USDA agencies on farm bill implementation. The Web site will also contain advanced electronic applications.

The Web site will be updated regularly as new information and program announcements become available. The “What’s New” link will alert users to updates and added information.

President Bush signed the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 into law May 13.
