Upon announcing the hearing, Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway issued the following statement:

As we look at the farm bill through the lens of the current farm economy, innovation and technology will remain essential for farmers and ranchers to continue producing more food and fiber with fewer resources.
