Specialty Group Social - Agricultural PoliticsCommittee Meetings (Society and Other)
Crop and soil science research may influence governmental policy, but policy does not always align with research. This group encourages people to discuss research as a public good, and how policy is currently affecting the impact of agricultural research and product development. What aspects of agricultural policy have been beneficial to advances in crop and soil sciences? What aspects have been detrimental? What can people do at local and national levels to help influence change in agricultural policy? People from academia, private industries, government, and other areas of society are welcome to share their thoughts on the subject.
