U.S. Agricultural Production Systems of the Future: What Research is Needed Now?
Windbreaks are plantings of trees, shrubs or both, that shelter crops, soil, animals, homes, and people from wind, snow, dust, or odors.
The diversity of agricultural production systems across the United States presents wide-ranging opportunities for exciting new research and innovation. New scientific findings and new technology, for example robotic automation, artificial intelligence, vertical farming and gene editing, could all play a role in not only improving existing systems but in developing new systems and new products altogether. New and emerging agricultural products can generate exciting new niches for farmers who want to meet consumer demands for crops and livestock with improved nutritional or environmental benefits.
Join the USDA Listening Session on March 2, 2017
USDA needs to know how research can help U.S. farmers produce the agricultural products consumers desire. You can listen to this session live by computer (March 2, 2017 USDA Listening Session), or by phone [888-844-9904, code 8967180] and submit written comments up to a week after the listening session as listed in the Federal Registry. Please email Dr. Seth Murray at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional instructions and information before submitting written comments.
