The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has launched a new, on-line, on-demand knowledge database, called 'Ask the Expert'. This new service connects with existing UDSA knowledge systems, so consumers can visit one site and get access to expanded information and resources on subjects such as food, nutrition, food safety, energy, the environment and conservation. Frequently asked questions are stored in an on-line database that pulls data and information from all the USDA's agency resources.
Over the next six months, the system will expand, with additional questions and answers added based on public inquiries, new information and search patterns.
To visit the 'Ask the Expert' database, go to: Ask the Expert.
