The Agriculture Study consensus questions that the LWVEF Board adopted are now available for download. These qustions are for your information only. The actual questions will be in a leaders' guide and in an online form for Leagues to input their consensus reports. As for LWVUS studies for at least ten years, consensus reports will not be accepted on paper.  These questions plus other resources and discussions are now online in the Agriculture Update group of the LWVUS Forums at: http://forum.lwv.org/group/agriculture-update.
