We can grow the farm economy while reducing emissions

Reps. Glenn Thompson and David Valadao write in the Washington Examiner on different ways to grow the farm economy while reducing emissions.

The C3 Take
  • To combat food prices that are impacting consumers, policymakers should look to empower American farmers.
  • Thanks to innovation and technological breakthroughs American agriculture has increased crop yields while reducing its environmental footprint.
  • Congress and the Biden administration can build upon this progress by enacting pro-growth policies, such as free trade, that allow America’s farmers to thrive.

“People want policies that lower food prices, strengthen supply chains, and benefit the environment. House Republicans’ commitment to conservation with a purpose will achieve that by fighting for rural America by empowering farmers, ranchers, and foresters to continue harnessing the carbon-reducing potential of their lands while increasing the global economic competitiveness of U.S. agribusinesses.”
