Title 7 Recommendations

AFA recommends prioritizing fiber-rich foods in the research programs of Title VII.

  1. Increase funding for the Specialty Crop Research Initiative.
  2. Increase funding for the Urban, Indoor, and Emerging Agricultural Initiative.
  3. Increase funding for Sustainable Agriculture and Research Education (SARE).
  4. Prioritize projects under SARE whose research would advance understanding of farm transitions toward sustainable fiber-rich food crop production, like the transitions proposed in AFA’s FARMS Amendment.
  5. Increase funding for and promote research areas under AFRI’s Foundational and Applied Science Program that advance and optimize fiber-rich food production.
