As someone who has been working in agriculture for nearly sixty years, there isn’t much that I haven’t seen. We’ve tried many different things on my farm and the ones my sons and daughters farm: conservation tillage, cover cropping, GMO varieties, non-GMO varieties, precision agriculture, brewery ingredients and malting, heirloom vegetables, farmers markets. Certain trends – like the growing interest in locally grown foods and seasonal consumption – remind me of how my grandparents farmed and fed their families. In many respects, we have come full circle.

On behalf of AGree, I would like to congratulate the recipients of the 115 USDA RCPP grants that Secretary Tom Vilsack announced on January 14. These projects, which will leverage nearly $800 million to support agricultural conservation across the country, demonstrate the leadership of the partners involved and have strong potential to move us toward a future where landscape stewardship, long-term productivity, and the prosperity of farming communities are aligned.
