USFRA Announces Growing Commitment to Future of Agriculture


U.S. Farmers and Ranchers in Action celebrated National Ag Day by announcing the growing list of companies, organizations and individuals who have joined the Decade of Ag. The program is the first sector-wide movement to align to a shared vision for the next decade centered around investing in the next generation of agricultural systems, restoring the environment, regenerating natural resources and in doing so, strengthening the social and economic fabric of America.

USFRA CEO Erin Fitzgerald says, “These leaders are stepping up in action to collaborate for meaningful impact.” The shared Decade of Ag vision is for a resilient, restorative, economically viable and climate-smart agricultural system. The Decade of Ag vision was a two-year process finalized at USFRA’s annual Honor the Harvest Forum in the fall of 2020. USFRA says the case for food and agriculture to become the first U.S. economic sector to become carbon negative is promising, but more collaboration, partnerships and investment are needed to accelerate progress and make a meaningful impact in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
