Full Committee – Public Hearing
RE: The Next Farm Bill: University Research

Upon announcing the hearing, Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) issued the following statement:

“Agricultural research has been essential to U.S. gains in productivity over the past century. With the global population expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, U.S. production agriculture will continue to be asked to produce more with fewer resources and the best way to do that will be through strategic investments in agricultural research. I look forward to hearing from university leaders about the opportunities and challenges they face in ensuring American agriculture remains a world leader in cutting-edge technology and research.”
