Project Period:

5 months 1994-01-01 - 1994-06-01

Principal Investigator:

Ann Sorensen, AFT CAE

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.
