As Murray wraps up his 33-year career with the NJDA, he says that he has witnessed many changes and forms of agriculture since 1983.

I recently had the privilege of talking with New Jersey Department of Agriculture Assistant Secretary Alfred Murray about some of the innovations he has seen over the past 33 years in the field of agriculture.

The NJDA has long been an innovative agency with knowledgeable, dedicated individuals; it’s currently led by Secretary of Agricultur, Douglas H. Fisher. Since joining the department, Murray has served three secretaries of agriculture: Arthur R. Brown Jr., the late Charles Kuperus, and Fisher.
