2012 Annual Report

(Arizona’s 2012 Annual Report is a celebration of the 150th year anniversary of the Department of Agriculture and the 100th birthday of the state of Arizona. Following along a 25-year continuum, the booklet not only catalogues the work done in 2012, but also offers a retrospective on how USDA and Arizona have progressed since their inceptions. The Annual Report contains stories written during the year on specific projects and facts, figures, and perspectives from the past. For budget considerations, we are publishing the booklet on-line. Comments can be sent to: dianna.jennings@az.usda.gov.)
