How much is a subscription?
The Agricultural Review is free to North Carolina residents.
I live out-of-state and I used to get the Agricultural
Review. Why can't I get it mailed to me anymore?
To keep our mailing expenses at a minimum, we had to take out-of-state
subscribers off our list. You can access it online or we can mail
you a copy if you send a self-addressed, stamped envelope (business-size, with 2 stamps)
to Agricultural Review, 1001 Mail Service Center, Raleigh NC 27699-1001.
I have an out-of-state address, but pay property
taxes in North Carolina. Can I get a subscription?
Yes, if you send proof of your current land ownership (i.e. property
tax notification) to Agricultural Review, 1001 Mail Service Center,
Raleigh NC 27699-1001.
Why don't you print a November issue?
Our budget allows us to print only 11 issues. We chose to combine
the November and December issues because the winter months are typically
a slower time for buying and selling farm equipment.
I sent a check to help offset the cost of printing.
Why was it sent back?
Our mission says that we are to provide this publication free of
charge. We are a small staff and currently do not have an accounting
system in place to handle money.

What is the cutoff date for ads?
The ad deadline is noon on the first working day of the month prior to publication. For example, if you want your ad to be published in the September issue, we must receive it by noon the first working day of August. For additional information, see the deadline calendar below. A combined November-December issue of the Agricultural Review will be published in late November. The advertising deadline for this issue is noon on Oct. 15.
Deadline - noon on the following days:
||December 2, 2013
||January 2, 2014
Why is the cutoff date so long before the issue
We must receive, sort and type all ads, plus have time to layout
the paper and send it to the printer. We must allow time for the
paper to be printed and be delivered to us. Then we need several
days for all the papers to be addressed and sorted into proper bags
for bulk mail postage, arrange for delivery to the post office and
then be mailed. Publication of the Ag Review is just one of the
many functions of this office. We are not set up, or staffed, like
a newspaper office.
Why does my friend receive his paper before
All papers are delivered to the U.S. Post Office in Raleigh at the
same time. We must deliver them at the same time to receive the
lowest postage rate. Once we turn them over to the USPS, we have
no control over delivery. Delivery takes longer for some parts of
the state because of the distance from the initial point of mailing.
Please ask your local postmaster.
Why did I stop receiving my Agricultural Review?
The most common reason is that we did not receive your renewal card.
The renewal card is a postcard found annually in the June issue
that must be cut out and mailed in. Unfortunately, this card is
small and flimsy, so a small percentage do not make it back to us,
or may be damaged in shipping, even if they are mailed in.
Each month we also receive a lot of non-deliverable mail, even from
subscribers who have been on the mailing list for a long time. The
reason for this may be a new postal carrier who is not familiar
with people on the route and doesn't allow old road names or routes
to be used.
What do I need to do to change my name/address,
report duplicate copies?
Call our office, 919-733-4216, or correct your information online. You will need your account number,
which is found above your name on the mailing label.
Why isn't the Ag Review put online sooner?
We strive to make it as fair as possible for everybody. We usually
post the issue online two days after mailing it so people can access
it around the same time as the majority of people who receive it
in the mail. You can signup for our new e-mail service to receive
a notification when the new issue goes online at www.ncagr.com/aspzine/paffairs/AgReviewNotify/mail.asp.
Renewal cards - What are they and why do we
do this every year?
The General Assembly requires that we update our mailing list each
year. The renewal card is a postcard found annually in the June
issue that must be cut out and mailed in. Unfortunately, this card
is small, so a small percentage do not make it back to us, or may
be damaged in shipping. Please do not
cover or mark through the bar code above your name and account number
and please put a stamp on the side that asks for a stamp. You can
also renew your subscription online. Check the Web site in June.
You must have your account number to renew online.You can also denote address changes on your renewal card. Mark
those beside your name and address where appropriate.
