    MONTPELIER ó The Vermont Agriculture Agency is going to hold a webinar so Vermonters can provide feedback on rules for a new law that some say could significantly affect the stateís fruit and vegetable farmers.

    The webinar will be held on Nov. 4. It will walk participants through the comment process for the Produce Safety and Preventive Control Rules.

    The deadline for making comments on the Food and Drug Administrationís proposed rules to implement the Food Safety Modernization Act is Nov. 15.

    The act is considered the most sweeping reform of our nationís food safety laws in more than 70 years.

    The law was signed by President Barack Obama in 2011.

    When finalized, these rules will affect many Vermont vegetable and fruit growers.
