The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) has released the 2019 rates for voluntary fruits, vegetables and specialty crop services. The rates include pricing for voluntary grading, inspection, certification, verification and laboratory services for a variety of agricultural commodities. These services ensure the quality and availability of produce for consumers nationwide.

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) 2019 Agricultural Tractor and Mobile Equipment Survey deadline has been extended to May 15, 2019. Farmers, agricultural operators and processors are encouraged to participate in this survey so that CARB may accurately depict agricultural equipment across California. The previous survey in 2008 helped determine allocations of hundreds of millions of dollars in equipment turnover programs across the state, from federal and air district incentive programs.
