The AGree Economic and Environmental Risk Coalition creates a bridge between positive environmental outcomes and profitability for farmers and ranchers.

Representing a diverse range of interests, our members include researchers, academics, farmers, former officers of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and NGO leadership. Together, we advocate for common-sense policies that protect both natural resources and farmers’ livelihoods.

The Coalition’s members actively promote these policies: we develop recommendations, lobby Congress, support the USDA’s implementation processes, and lead strategic communication efforts. We work collaboratively with seemingly disparate groups, focusing on practical, research-backed solutions that advance our shared goals.

The Coalition works according to consensus guiding principles that lead us forward, supporting our success to date. Since 2013, we have produced research and analysis, actively engaged with USDA and Congress, and established trusted relationships with key agricultural leaders across the country. As the food and agriculture sector evolves, we will continue to build on these strong foundations, creating systems that support our vital food producers—and protect the land that makes their work possible.

Our Work

Agriculture Data

The AGree Coalition works closely with Congress and the USDA to shape policies that will support greater data integration and analysis—and help farmers make important land management decisions.

Crop Insurance

The AGree Coalition advocates for federal risk management programs that encourage farmers to implement practices that reduce producers’ long-term risk, in addition to improving soil health and water quality.
