Got a question for USDA leader Tom Vilsack about emerging trends in agriculture?
For his final Virtual Office Hours session of 2012, Vilsack will host a live Twitter chat on the important role of rural America to the national and global economy, increasing agricultural opportunities in U.S. communities, and the importance of passing a five-year Farm Bill.
Tweet your questions with the hashtag #AskUSDA and he may answer during a live chat this afternoon!
You may have questions like:
- What are the emerging sectors in agriculture for new farmers and ranchers; where do I find them?
- In both rural and urban communities, what is the significance of the agricultural sector?
- I didn’t grow up on a farm. Are there other opportunities in agriculture besides farming that I should know about?
The chat will take place at 3:30 p.m. EDT today. (December 17, 2012)
