NASDA commends launching the Regional Agricultural Promotion Program to boost U.S. food and agriculture exports worldwide

The National Association of State Departments of Agriculture applauds Secretary Vilsack for establishing the Regional Agricultural Promotion Program to better promote America’s food and agriculture products in demand across the globe.

ARLINGTON, Va. -- The National Association of State Departments of Agriculture applauds Secretary Vilsack for establishing the Regional Agricultural Promotion Program to better promote America's food and agriculture products in demand across the globe.


"It's important to know that for every $1 invested in export market development programs, $24 is returned in export revenue. Simply put, this program is a win for farmers, ranchers and the American economy because it will increase income and create more American jobs in the farm and food sector," NASDA CEO Ted McKinney said. "This program will build upon the success of the Agricultural Trade Promotion Program, which is projected to generate $6.44 billion in farm cash receipts and nearly 14,780 jobs annually."

X-Rail: reliability and resistance to environmental impurities

Rollon's X-Rail linear rails are a reliable solution in environments susceptible to impurities. Equipped with rolling elements with shaped and flat raceways, they are available in several versions: galvanized, nitrided or stainless-steel sheet metal. The latter version ensures total corrosion resistance, which is critical for hostile environments such as those found in vertical farming. Particularly innovative is the T + U configuration of the X-Rail linear rails, which can compensate for the parallelism errors of mounting surfaces. This simplifies installation and reduces costs.
