After the hearing, Subcommittee Ranking Member Doug LaMalfa (CA-1) released the following remarks: “Precision agriculture allows farmers to increase productivity while minimizing input costs. Ideally, all farmers and ranchers would be able to utilize precision agriculture to improve both conservation efforts and farm productivity. In the 2018 Farm Bill, we added precision agriculture to several innovation-driven programs and included multiple provisions aimed at expanding broadband networks to rural areas. Smart conservation, like precision agriculture, is the key to protecting our land and the livelihood of American farmers for generations to come.”
