Farmer Co-ops Applaud Climate Smart Agriculture Provisions in Build Back Better Framework

Fri, 29 Oct 2021 11:30:44 CDT

Farmer Co-ops Applaud Climate Smart Agriculture Provisions in Build Back Better Framework The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) this evening expressed its support for the inclusion of significant new funding to promote the adoption of climate-smart agricultural practices in the framework agreement for the Build Back Better (BBB) budget reconciliation bill.

“The funding included in the framework for BBB on climate-smart agriculture will help support the farmers and ranchers interested in exploring new, innovative approaches to farming that help address the challenge of climate change. It is especially notable that the money is targeted to adding a climate focus to successful, existing working lands conservation programs,” said Chuck Conner, president and CEO of NCFC. “As a co-chair and founding member of the Food and Agriculture Climate Alliance, NCFC is committed to supporting efforts both by Congress and the Administration to help America’s farmers, co-ops and rural communities prosper from climate smart agriculture.”

About NCFC
Since 1929, NCFC has been the voice of America's farmer cooperatives. Our members are regional and national farmer cooperatives, which are in turn composed of nearly 2,000 local farmer cooperatives across the country. NCFC members also include 26 state and regional councils of cooperatives. Farmer cooperatives allow individual farmers the ability to own and lead organizations that are essential for continued competitiveness in both the domestic and international markets.

America’s farmer-owned cooperatives provide a comprehensive array of services for their members. These diverse organizations handle, process and market virtually every type of agricultural commodity. They also provide farmers with access to infrastructure necessary to manufacture, distribute and sell a variety of farm inputs. Additionally, they provide credit and related financial services, including export financing.
