New bill would boost advanced, climate-related agricultural research

Andrew Freedman of Axios reports on a new bill that will boost advanced research and development for agriculture.

The C3 Take
  • The bipartisan bill was introduced by Sens. Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Roger Marshall (R-KS).
  • The bill funds the Agriculture Advanced Research and Development Authority (AgARDA) at the USDA for $100 million.
  • AgARDA, which was authorized in the 2018 Farm Bill and has yet to be adequately funded, aims to advance R&D efforts to accelerate agricultural innovations and develop climate-resilient farming methods.
  • Given the United States’ role as the global leader in food production and exports, efforts to develop innovative farming methods are crucial to keep our agriculture sector strong and successful.

“A bipartisan bill will be introduced Thursday by Sens. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and Roger Marshall (R-Kansas) to re-up a program to foster next–generation agricultural research, including work to address the agriculture sector’s ability to withstand extreme weather.”
