Farm Service Agency Offers a Free Online News Service
Up-to-the-Minute Farm Program News Direct to Your Email Account

Executive Director, Adrian J. Polansky announced that farmers, ranchers and
others in Kansas now have a more efficient, timely option for receiving
important FSA program eligibility requirements, deadlines and related

"FSA is now offering free online communications through our GovDelivery
electronic news service," said Polansky.  "News will now be sent via
e-mail - allowing you to receive immediate notification of program news that
is pertinent to your agricultural operation," he said.

Through FSA's GovDelivery electronic news service, anyone can establish
subscriber preferences by choosing to receive federal farm program
information by topic, by state and/or by county.  Subscribers can select as
many options as they want, which allows producers who farm in multiple
counties or across state lines to receive updates from each county in which
they operate or have an interest.

FSA in Kansas will automatically subscribe farmers and ranchers to
GovDelivery when they provide their email address to the local FSA office.
FSA has already subscribed about 16,000 producers in Kansas to receive news
electronically through GovDelivery.

Grassroots organizations, agri-businesses, and others interested in
receiving FSA information through email can subscribe to GovDelivery online
at  After you enter your email address,
click on '+' next to 'Updates for State and County'.  Scroll down and click
on '+' next to 'Kansas' and select the counties which you have an interest
and click on 'Submit' at the bottom of the page.  Please note that there are
other options available in GovDelivery that will provide you national
information by topic through your email.

"Unfortunately, the FSA budget deficit affects the way we normally do
business," said Polansky. "We no longer have funding to mail newsletters and
other mass mailings. GovDelivery is a free electronic news delivery service
that ensures Kansas farmers and ranchers remain informed of program changes,
signups and deadlines."

A small supply of printed newsletters will be available in the FSA county
office for those that don't have emails.

Please contact your local FSA office if you have questions regarding FSA's
GovDelivery electronic news service.
