Abstract:

Agribusiness is a vital segment of US commerce, a critical part of American infrastructure, and an often overshadowed component of our national security strategy. Its importance to the US has been likened to that of oil to the Middle East. History demonstrates that a nation able to feed its own citizens is inherently stronger and thus able to provide a safer and more secure society. US agribusiness leads the world, yet faces continued competition in an environment of technological change and global agribusiness consolidation. This report assesses the entire industry while focusing on four key areas water use, land management, grains and fibers, and food safety and security.
