Welcome to the Agricultural Council of Arkansas (Ag Council). We are a non-profit trade association committed to telling the story of row crop agriculture in Arkansas, advocating on behalf of farmers and the agriculture industry, and improving the economies of the communities around us. We have been promoting agriculture since 1939.

Today our membership is composed of family farms, agriculture related businesses, and others supportive of agriculture in Arkansas. Our members strive to advance policies that will ensure the continued success of agriculture in our state. The Ag Council is a well-known and respected voice in the world of agriculture. We work closely with policy makers in Washington, D.C. and Arkansas to shape the future of agriculture.

Our membership is our strength!                            http://agcouncil.net/become-a-member
