Welcome to Arizona

State Executive Director

Welcome, I am honored to serve as Arizona’s State Executive Director.

Arizona is one of the most diverse states, in terms of agriculture, in the country. We are one of the nation's leaders in the production of winter vegetables, durum wheat, and upland cotton. Due to our gorgeous climate, we are one of the lucky states able to grow crops year round.

Our primary mission is to make sure that Arizona’s farmers and ranchers secure the greatest possible benefit from programs administered by FSA such as farm loans, commodity price support, disaster relief, conservation, and other available resources.

The hard working women and men of Arizona’s eight service centers are at the forefront of our efforts. They are the primary contact for all program participation and other related questions.

Please visit our site often for resources and to obtain the most up-to-date agriculture information pertinent to you. I also encourage you to reach out to the service center in your community for assistance in our various programs. You can find your local office at HERE.

Sincerely,

Gloria Montaño Greene
State Executive Director, Arizona
