The 2008 Farm Bill Report: Making an Impact through NIFA
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) was established by the Food Conservation and Energy Act of 2008 (the 2008 Farm Bill) to find innovative solutions to issues related to agriculture, food, the environment, and communities. The agency works with other government agencies, industry, and academia to lead research, education, and Cooperative Extension activities. The work that NIFA supports is part of a dynamic system that moves science from labs to farm and classroom, to dining table, and back again.
