Frequently Asked Questions about
The Agricultural Review

How can I get a subscription to the Agricultural Review?
Either send a request to Agricultural Review, 1001 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-1001 or click here to send a request online.

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.

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.

How do I submit an ad?
By mail: Agricultural Review, 1001 Mail Service Center, Raleigh NC 27699-1001.
By fax: 919-733-5047

Also check the Ad Policy to find out more about the rules regarding advertsing.

Why can't I submit an ad over the phone?
We do this to avoid possible errors in taking down the ad information. By receiving a hard copy from you, we can ensure that the information is correct.

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. The advertising deadline for this issue is midnight on Oct. 15.

Issue

Deadline - midnight on the following days:

December 2014 November 3
January 2015 December 1, 2014
February January 2, 2015
March February 2
April March 2
May April 1
June May 1

August July 1
September August 3
October September 1
November October 1
December November 2

Why is the cutoff date so long before the issue is printed?
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 me?
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, 919-707-3001, 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.
