Farm Policy

Farm policy is critically important to U.S. agricultural producers, rural communities, and consumers. Policies provided through the multi-year farm bill enhance farmers’ ability to manage risk and enable the production of food, feed, fuel, and biobased products here at home and abroad.

As Congress begins the farm bill reauthorization process, ASA supports additional budgetary resources to strengthen the next farm bill and prioritizes:

• Improving the farm safety net for soybeans
• Protecting crop insurance
• Enhancing accessibility of conservation programs and maintaining the voluntary, incentive-based approach
• Growing investments in the promotion of U.S. commodities globally
• Building opportunities for biofuels and biobased products
• Maintaining the agricultural and nutrition titles
