Harmony between Agriculture and the Environment

Understanding links between farm economics and the use of natural resources is critical to fostering greater harmony between agriculture and ecosystems that support us and other species. Research can help find ways in which agricultural competitiveness and economic development can coexist with the natural resource base and enhanced environmental quality. Federal policies must constantly evolve to promote stewardship in light of new opportunities for productivity growth, resource-saving technologies, and threats to biodiversity.
