The report concludes, “ISA believes the 2012 Farm Bill should provide support for these programs that strengthen our greatest economic engine—agricultural production. Agricultural trade, research, renewable energy, conservation and transportation systems cannot be maintained by farmers acting alone. Public investments in agriculture have provided a huge benefit to the economy with a decreasing number of very productive farmers. This public investment in the programs that support agriculture should continue.”
