(March 19, 1:44 p.m.) The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service plans to launch a more user-friendly Web site April 4.

The site, modeled on the main USDA site’s redesign, will be organized around users’ needs, not the department’s organizational structure, said Becky Unkenholz, AMS’s deputy director of public affairs and Web master.

For instance, rather than navigating through the department’s programs — fruits and vegetables, poultry, etc. — users can now click on services like transportation or grading standards, Unkenholz said.

“It’s the same information, just with a different look and feel,” she said. “Everything that’s on the current site will be on the new site.”

While many of the Web addresses for AMS pages will remain the same, users may have to reset some bookmarks, Unkenholz said.

People having problems with the new site can email Unkenholz at AMSWebmaster@usda.gov.
