A variety of agricultural information at your fingertips!
(PRWEB) August 17, 2015
“A variety of agricultural information at your fingertips!” In brief, this serves to describe the role of the Farm Credit Knowledge Center’s website. The Farm Credit Knowledge Center was launched in early 2014 by Farm Credit of the Virginias to provide information and resources to agricultural producers as well as anyone interested in agriculture. The anchor of the Knowledge Center has always been its website, http://www.farmcreditknowledgecenter.com, which contains a broad array of information for many different audiences. As the Knowledge Center has continued to expand and adapt to meet the needs of Farm Credit customers, agricultural producers, youth, and people interested in learning more about agriculture; the website also continued to evolve.
A year and a half into this endeavor, the Farm Credit Knowledge Center is proud to announce the launch of a brand new website. The new site has been created to be able to continue to provide the best possible service to customers, employees and the general public. In addition to many of the features that people have come to expect from the Knowledge Center website including a weekly blog with a variety of information for all those interested in agriculture, commodity information and educational resources; the new site also features several exciting improvements. Some of these new features include a new responsive design which makes it easier to view on a variety of mobile devices, an interactive calendar that can be searched by topic, a section for current Farm Credit customer to login for exclusive access to commodity marketing information provided by IHS Global, a new bulletin board where farmers can post announcements related to internships, jobs and other opportunities, a page for producer grants, and a section on Farm Credit of the Virginias new FarmLaunch program for young and beginning farmers.
The goal of the Farm Credit Knowledge Center continues to be to provide up to date information and resources to a variety of agricultural producers, youth interested in agriculture and other who want to know more about agriculture. This new website is a step in continuing to grow and adapt to meet the needs of these many different groups.
