Establishing the Nationís First Farmland Information Library
An MOU with USDAís National Agricultural Library in May, 1993 established AFTís Farmland Information Center as the nationís first farmland information center. We developed a business and operating plan in May and officially launched the FIC in June.
The business plan recommended establishing a state-of-the-art electronic library as the most efficient and cost-effective means to widely distribute information on farmland protection. The central library was housed at CAE.
