21 March 2023 - The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) joined the two-dozen commodity and agriculture groups that make up the Food and Agriculture Climate Alliance (FACA) to release the group’s 2023 farm bill priorities today.
“The 2023 farm bill should advance bipartisan policies that invest in rural communities and strengthen our national food supply chain. The equipment manufacturing industry wants to see robust incentives for the adoption of precision agriculture technology, as well as vital safety net programs to support America’s farmers and ranchers, included in the bill. As the legislative package takes shape, we look forward to working with Congress, our member companies, and industry partners, to deliver a bipartisan farm bill this year,” said Kip Eideberg, AEM Senior Vice President of Government and Industry Relations.
FACA will focus on the following issue area priorities for the 2023 Farm Bill:
● Conservation, Risk Management, and Credit
● Food Waste
● Livestock and Dairy
● Research Extension, and Innovation
