SOY GROWERS SUPPORT BONNIE NOMINATION
American Soybean Association (ASA) reports:

Washington, D.C. - ASA is pleased with President Biden's announcement that he will nominate Robert Bonnie to oversee USDA's Farm Production and Conservation (FPAC) mission area as Under Secretary.

FPAC is significant to agriculture and includes the Farm Service Agency, which manages commodity programs and the Conservation Reserve Program; the Risk Management Agency, which administers crop insurance; and the Natural Resources Conservation Service, which manages conservation programs other than CRP.

Kevin Scott, soybean farmer from Valley Springs, South Dakota, and ASA President said, "Bonnie has a solid background, having overseen NRCS under the Obama Administration and most recently serving as Secretary Vilsack's chief climate adviser. We have appreciated his public service in support of agriculture, and we respect Bonnie's accessibility and responsiveness to us as farmers. Just recently, he joined ASA virtually for a conversation during our March board meetings, and we've consistently seen this willingness on his part to connect with farmers. We look forward to working with him in this new role after his confirmation."
