Indiana State Department of Agriculture

ISDA > Home Communications

ISDA is strategically-positioned to be an advocate for Indiana agribusiness. One important component of that is through communicating with the general public via mass media. This takes many forms, including direct outreach, news and information posted on the ISDA web site, spokesperson duties, proactive outreach to the news media, and increased involvement with various new forms of media.

There is a tremendous story to tell, both to the general public about Indiana agribusiness, and to our natural constituency about the good work and services being done and available through ISDA. Our commitment is to tell it in an increasingly useful and engaging manner. 

If you have a story idea or are a member of the news media with an inquiry about ISDA or Indiana agribusiness, please contact Abigail Maurer at 317-605-6960 or
