Agri-Pulse has debuted the first in a series of in-depth articles on the next farm bill, “Every Farm Bill is Unique – the last one was a doozy.”

“The Seven Things You Should Know Before You Write the Next Farm Bill” series will culminate in a Farm Bill Summit at the National Press Club on March 20. Agri-Pulse Editor Sara Wyant says the effort is “designed to foster a well-rounded discussion about the future of food and farm policy, as well as a deeper understanding of how all Americans benefit from a comprehensive farm bill.”

Sponsors of the series include the American Farm Bureau Federation, American Sugar Alliance, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, National Crop Insurance Services, Environmental Defense Fund and the Specialty Crop Farm Bill Alliance.

“The farm bill series and Summit will provide an essential platform so that congressional and administration staff members are fully aware of the many issues on the collective agenda of America’s farmers and ranchers,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall.
