SUSTAINABLE AND ORGANIC AGRICULTURE

Sustainable and organic agriculture is the future. These practices protect the soil, preserve our water, and improve farmers' profits. All of these benefits mean that farming will become more attractive for newcomers, and established family farms will be more likely to be passed on to the next generation.

 

Support for Young Farmers

I will work to establish and support a program to forgive the student loans of anyone who works full-time on a farm for four years.

 

Fund Innovation In Agriculture

We should reprioritize agricultural research and outreach programs to focus on finding the most effective and sustainable solutions to persistent and new concerns of farmers.

 

Rural Broadband

We need to immediately create a program on the model of the Rural Electrification Administration to bring high-speed broadband to rural communities.
