Agweek covers
We are part of The Trust Project.

How can we better serve farmers, ranchers, agribusiness professionals and the people in the region who live in rural areas?

That's one of the questions we're always asking at Agweek. What do our readers and viewers need from us to help them better run their businesses and help better understand what's happening in markets, agriculture policy, food and rural life?

Many of us at Agweek are closely connected to agriculture in our personal lives as well as our professional lives. We use those experiences often to help shape what we report and how we prioritize what to cover. But we do not want to rely on our beliefs alone. We exist to serve the agricultural community, and the needs of the agricultural community are what has shaped Agweek since it began in 1985.

Please consider taking our survey to tell us what you think of our work, how it could be better, what you like about it now and more. The survey shouldn't take long, and if you make it to the end, you'll be able to enter to win a $500 Visa gift card. You can find it here:

Agweek's mission is to provide trusted information on agriculture to farmers, ranchers, agribusiness professionals and consumers so they can make informed decisions for their businesses and their lives. The best way to accomplish that is to make sure we are truly partnering with you, our audience. Please join us in keeping Agweek a vital part of your business.
