USDA’S Agricultural Marketing Service AMS– Beyond Market News


Terry Long, Director of Specialty Crops Market News and Chair of MIOA will introduce    his colleagues from a few of the other important areas of work performed by the Agricultural Marketing Service of USDA. Within MIOA, AMS is known as the home of Market News. However, AMS is actually one of the largest agencies of  USDA,  with Market News representing only a small portion of its staff and of the wide range of  services that it provides. AMS plays a number of critical roles in the growing, handling   and marketing of agricultural products, ranging from inspection and certification, to food safety and food security. These efforts sometimes have an impact felt in many corners of the world.

The Divisions within AMS that areas that will present are:

Marketing Orders and Agreements MOAD

        By Peter Scarabelli, Branch Chief

Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA)

By Travis Hubbs, Deputy Director

Research and Promotion

By Kelly Roberts, Acting Deputy Director

Please plan to join us on April 27th to learn more about this important agency of USDA. We hope that you will find the information to be of value to you, and that there will be useful concepts that can carried away by the participants to their homes.
