Representing thousands of U.S. farmers, 21 farm organizations are publicly kickstarting Farmers for a Sustainable Future (FSF), a coalition committed to environmental and economic sustainability. This alliance will serve as a major resource for policymakers as they take into account sustainability and climate policies essential to agriculture.
The American Soybean Association (ASA) chief executive Ryan Findlay says “Soybean farmers have an awesome story to tell, along with their sustainability initiatives, so it’s great to have the ability to partner with like-minded groups to promote sound policy and program decisions and have a platform to share our works.”
ASA has been involved with FSF since its formation to play an active role in the direction of the new D.C.-based group.
Other members embrace National Sorghum Producers, American Pulse Association, American Sugar Alliance, National Corn Growers Association, National Barley Growers Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, National Cotton Council of America, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, National Farmers Union, American Farm Bureau Federation, American Soybean Association, National Milk Producers Federation, Nationwide Pork Producers Council, Southern Peanut Farmers Association, U.S. Canola Association, and USA Rice.
The coalition will share with elected delegates media, and the public U.S. agriculture’s commitment to sustainability and the unimaginable strides already made to reduce agriculture’s environmental footprint.
