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 agriculture businesses, and growing 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!

“We are the only organization in the state that strictly represents the row crop industry, and we serve an important role for our members and their businesses. This organization gives us a strong and united voice among policy makers at the State Capitol and in Washington.”
-Herrick Norcross,  Ag Council President 2012-2013 – producer, Tyronza, Ark.

“Every farmer cannot give their talent, but there is no excuse for not investing money to protect your interests. You never know just when help from an organization like this will be needed and needed badly. Experience has taught us that you can’t wait until war is declared to form and train an army.”
Harvey R. Adams, Executive V.P. of the Agricultural Council of Arkansas in 1943.
