MDARD Announces Online Portal For Farmers To Find Help

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) today launched an  online resource and information portal  to make it a one-stop spot for farmers to find the help they need this year because of the historic rainfalls.

The site will be constantly updated as new information and aid is identified. It includes resources from partners like Michigan State University Extension and the United States Department of Agriculture.
