It is necessary to mitigate threats to sustain the overall competitiveness of U.S. agriculture to maintain an abundant food supply for people and livestock, to support the farmers, ranchers and workers who drive the U.S. food and agriculture sector, and to sustain the vitality of rural communities, rural and urban agriculture infrastructure, and agricultural businesses.
