AMS reports price and sales data for hundreds of commodities, purchases food for USDA feeding programs, implements and enforces organic standards under the National Organic Program, and offers technical assistance and grant funding to support local and regional food systems.

In addition to new task-related menus, the website features a responsive design that makes it easy to use on mobile devices. Users who previously bookmarked AMS Market News commodity price data or other information on the old website can still use the same links on the redesigned site.
