In Washington, D.C., the Coalition to Advance Precision Agriculture launched a new website – www.DiscoverPrecisionAg.org – to facilitate communication between farm and agribusiness associations and government decision-makers about precision agriculture, innovation, tools and practices. The website helps CAPA promote science-based policy decisions to advance a safe and sustainable food system.
Coalition members include organizations from across the agricultural community, from grower groups to agribusiness associations working to develop the most advanced technology possible for farmers.
Dale Moore, executive director of public policy at the American Farm Bureau Federation said, “Precision agriculture is about using just the right amount of seed, fertilizer and crop protection for every acre we plant. The technology revolution that made that precision possible promises still more abundance and less environmental impact than ever before. We’re proud to be a part of CAPA and urge anyone with an interest in farming and sustainability to visit the coalition’s new website.”
