  • AGRICULTURE.COM Redesigned

    by Jason Meeker

    In 2010 Agriculture.com was redesigned from the ground up to incorporate emerging communications, including multimedia, social-media, user-generated content and more.

    The new Agriculture.com provides a new and exciting opportunity for universities, cooperative extension agencies, and research organizations to extend their reach online by developing a presence on one of the most accessed websites in agriculture.

    As tight budgets continue to tighten, public sector organizations need to get the most ‘bang for their buck’ when it comes to disseminating their message. Institutions can extend their reach to farmers and other agriculturalists through the redesigned site by setting up an account, posting content and using the social media extensions to generate buzz. AGRICULTURE.COM is a new way to syndicate content and broaden the reach of agricultural communicators.

    This session will include a tour of the new website, new features, tutorials on setting up an account and posting content including stories, events, and photos.

    Originally launched in 1995, Agriculture.com had over 25.5 million page views in 2010, and is the web presence of Successful Farming magazine. Founded in 1902, SF was the first magazine published by Meredith Corporation and is one of the most successful and recognizable brands in the agricultural industry.
