Ag Innovation Agenda

American agriculture is environmentally sound, economically viable, and consumer focused, and its

success is due to the United States’ open-arms approach to innovation. The Agriculture Innovation

Agenda (AIA) is the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) commitment to the continued

success of American farmers, ranchers, producers, and foresters in the face of future challenges. It is a

department-wide effort to align USDA’s resources, programs, and research to provide farmers with the

tools they need and to position American Agriculture as a leader in the effort to meet the food, fiber, fuel,

feed, and climate demands of the future. We will also continue working to modernize our regulatory

framework so America’s producers will have the benefit of modern technologies, such as biotechnology,

necessary to meet these challenges. USDA will stimulate innovation so that American agriculture can

achieve the goal of increasing U.S. agricultural production by 40 percent while cutting the environmental

footprint of U.S. agriculture in half by 2050.
