NIFA’s Fiscal Year 2016 President’s Budget submission seeks resources to develop a comprehensive approach to addressing the agriculture-health nexus, ensuring the health and well-being of our nation by supporting cutting-edge research, education, and extension initiatives that advance sustainable agricultural production systems and provide for an abundant and quality food supply.

Agriculture affects all facets of health—human, animal, plant, environmental, and economic—either directly or indirectly. Significant impacts related to agricultural
production, climate variability, nutrition and childhood obesity, plant and animal health, food safety, and natural resources and the environment are in need of new, multidisciplinary approaches and innovative solutions made possible through targeted and sound investments. Our expectation is that the proposed initiatives in the request also will enhance the renewable agricultural and forestry enterprises that underpin the bioeconomy and support resiliency of rural communities, create jobs, and promote economic well-being.
