Food and Agriculture Policy Research Institute (FAPRI)

The Food and Agriculture Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) works with members of Congress and their staffs to identify policy alternatives requiring expert analysis. FAPRI uses its own modeling system to estimate the impacts of different policies on agricultural markets, farm income, government outlays, and other indicators that are helpful to policy makers.

FAPRI has two major objectives:

  • To provide information to help these public decisionmakers evaluate farm policy options.
  • To develop the capacity to conduct quantitative analysis of agricultural policy issues.

FAPRI only provides information useful to policy makers; it neither supports nor opposes specific policy proposals. For detailed information, visit the FAPRI websites at Iowa State University and the University of Missouri.
