The South Carolina Department of Agriculture and Hugh Weathers, Commissioner, are pleased to announce that the Department’s Web site has moved to www.agriculture.sc.gov.

If you drive a car, own a pet, plant a garden, or eat even one meal a day, then you depend on the South Carolina Department of Agriculture’s programs and services. The Department hopes that farmers and consumers will find the new site not only more graphically attractive and user-friendly, but that they will find information relative to all their needs — from checking the accuracy of fuel dispensers to analyzing the purity of seeds.

Where else can farmers check the market news, the local weather, and join the Certified South Carolina Grown program all with the click of a mouse?

Consumers can also point and click to information on food recalls, the location of nearby Certified Roadside Markets, recipes, and gardening tips through quick links to Clemson’s Home and Garden Center and Gardening123.

Everyone can still subscribe and advertise by mail, email, or fax, but now they can also subscribe to and advertise in the Market Bulletin through an online process. It’s as easy as 1-2-3. Just follow directions at the Market Bulletin section on the site or call the Market Bulletin staff at 803-734-2536 and they’ll assist in the process.

So with all this available in one place, bookmark the new site for future reference.
