BIO Joins Coalition Response to USDA's RFI on Climate-Smart Agriculture

April 29, 2021

The farmers, ranchers, agricultural retailers, cooperatives, researchers, scientists, seed producers, and technology developers represented by the organizations signed below appreciate the opportunity to provide input for the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Climate-Smart Agriculture and Forestry Strategy. We recognize that this effort at collecting information from agriculture and forestry stakeholders originated from the “Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad.” The Executive Order stated: “America’s farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners have an important role to play in combating the climate crisis and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, by sequestering carbon in soils, grasses, trees, and other vegetation and sourcing sustainable bioproducts and fuels.” We agree and further state that American agriculture is already at the forefront of global sustainability. We appreciate USDA seeking stakeholder input on this complex issue and allowing us the opportunity to provide suggestions for ways that agriculture can deliver benefits beyond our current high standard.
