In a few decades, we will invite 3 billion additional people to our global dinner table. The need for advanced solutions in science, technology and research are crucial if America is going to feed itself and the world. That type of innovation requires smart investments.
In 2014, Congress created the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research with a $200 million investment and one goal: match every federal dollar with non-federal money and put it toward game-changing science. Today, FFAR is on track to create more than $450 million in scientific programming to benefit farmers and everyone who eats.
