are making tremendous progress implementing the new Farm Bill,”
said Secretary Vilsack. “This law is critically important to
America’s farmers and ranchers and to our nation’s economy. Every
USDA agency is working diligently to implement the Farm Bill’s new
provisions quickly and effectively.”
With 12 titles and over 450 provisions, the Farm Bill drives food, farm, conservation, trade, research, energy policies and more. Implementing such a large piece of legislation within the mandated timeline requires a coordinated effort across all areas of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
