Glossary of Specialized Terms
Over the centuries, agriculture has amassed its own ways of describing the thousands of actions crop and cattle producers must take to ensure they can provide food and fiber. Here, you'll find a searchable list of specialized terms and their definitions.
To search for a Term or Definition by word or phrase, enter that information in the keyword box above, and then select one of the options: "All of the Words", "At Least One Of The Words", or "The Exact Phrase" and press the Go! button.
Remember, it will search only for exactly what you type, and cannot translate abbreviations, misspellings, or variations.
Avoid using common words like the, by, where, and and as well as single digits and single letters because they tend to slow down your search, unless you are using the Exact Phrase option.
If you receive too many irrelevant results, try rephrasing your search term, or select one of the other options.
If you are not certain of the spelling of a word, just enter the first few letters of the word.
For example: If you type "labe" in the keyword box, you will find terms similar to:
"Country-of-origin labeling"; "Fair Packaging and Labeling Act"; and "Label(s)(ed)(ing) (food)"
