ASA, Others to USTR: U.S. Ag Makes Great Strides on Climate Goals

Fri, 30 Apr 2021 08:07:41 CDT

ASA, Others to USTR: U.S. Ag Makes Great Strides on Climate Goals ASA and other organizations sent a letter to USTR Ambassador Katherine Tai this week, highlighting the great strides the U.S. ag industry has made toward environmental sustainability and climate goals and stressing the importance of voluntary, market and incentive-based policies to help rural economies better adapt to climate change.

“Farmers have come a long way in learning how to maximize carbon sequestration-practices such as reduced tillage and precision agriculture techniques result in storing more carbon in our fields over long periods,” the groups state in the letter. “These insights have helped our industry understand how to better manage carbon and water to ensure long-term sustainability. We agree there are additional practices that farmers can adopt, including expanded use of cover crops. With good information and the correct incentives, farmers will achieve even better environmental outcomes.”

The letter was in response to Tai’s recent remarks that “climate-friendly and sustainable agricultural production is essential to meeting our climate and sustainability goals” and U.S. farmers and ranchers can lead the world with innovative carbon conservation practices.

ASA looks forward to engaging with Ambassador Tai as she continues to discuss the convergence of trade and the environment with international trade representatives. Read the full letter
