Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Agriculture Biotechnology, Horticulture, and Research Subcommittee held a hearing to examine the research and extension needs of producers. After the hearing, Subcommittee Ranking Member Neal Dunn (FL-2) made the following remarks:

“As producers face increasing threats from multiple risks, the need for a strong and robust agricultural research and extension system has never been greater. Farmers, ranchers and foresters need new technologies and adaptive strategies to address these evolving issues, and innovations achieved through biotechnology will be an important piece to the solution. America’s farmers remain the original and best stewards of the land and with the help of research and extension, will continue to provide the U.S. with the safest, most affordable food and fiber supply in the world.”
