AG GROUPS REITERATE SUPPORT FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) reports:

As the United States enters into climate agreements with global partners, U.S. agriculture groups told U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai this week that they are proud of their collective efforts on environmental sustainability. As NPPC and 11 other groups wrote to Tai,

"As an industry, agriculture does not always get the recognition it deserves for the practices already put in place, but we continue to be committed to improving production practices to reduce our impact on the environment....Farmers have come a long way in learning how to maximize carbon sequestration-practices such as reduced tillage and precision agriculture techniques result in storing more carbon in our fields over long periods," the letter noted.

"With good information and the correct incentives, farmers will achieve even better environmental outcomes," the letter added.

A copy of the letter is available here.
