WASHINGTON - The North Dakota Department of Agriculture will receive more than a half-million dollars in federal funding, the state's congressional delegation announced Thursday.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded $523,515 to help increase competition among producers, support rural agricultural interests and improve direct marketing for specialty crop producers.

"North Dakota's family farmers have an abundance to offer. This initiative will help them promote their products and get them to market," Sens. Kent Conrad and Byron Dorgan and Rep. Earl Pomeroy said in a joint statement.

The USDA distributed the dollars through funds appropriated as part of the 2008 farm bill.
