The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry’s (LDAF) mission is to “promote, protect, and advance agriculture and forestry resources.” Our aim is to have a team that effectively responds to challenges facing the agriculture industry while also promoting the development and growth of markets for Louisiana products and to develop channels of distribution locally, nationally, and internationally.
