We are the public-information arm
of the Agricultural Research Service.
ARS is the chief agency of scientific research in the
U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The staff provides ARS with media relations, news reporting, photography,
graphic design, education outreach, writing, editing, exhibit and presentation

We produce Agricultural Research magazine
