Postage rates up on January 21st

The United States Postal Service filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) for price changes to take effect Jan. 21, 2018. The new prices include a one cent increase in the price of a First-Class Mail Forever stamp from 49 cents to 50 cents.

Postcard stamps and metered letters would also have a one cent increase. The filing does not include any price change for single-piece letters being mailed to international destinations or for additional ounces for letters.

The proposed prices would raise Mailing Services product prices approximately 1.9 percent, and most Shipping Services products will average a 3.9 percent price increase. While Mailing Services price increases are limited based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI), Shipping Services prices are adjusted strategically, according to market conditions and the need to maintain affordable services for customers.

LSU AgCenter agriculture agents gather for training

LSU AgCenter agronomy, horticulture, forestry and animal agents from across Louisiana met during the AgCenter annual conference on the LSU campus on Dec. 13 for training and information.

At the agronomy session, AgCenter experts taught the basics of soil fertility. It was the beginning of a series of classes designed to refresh agriculture and natural resource agents on the foundational aspects of agricultural production.

“In this restructuring, we have fewer people to do things, so it’s kind of an organized effort to make sure people are equipped with the educational tools they need,” said Dan Fromme, a corn, cotton and grain sorghum specialist at the AgCenter Dean Lee Research and Extension Center in Alexandria.
