(WASHINGTON, DC — March 8, 2023) “Advancing climate-smart agriculture for farms of all sizes and geographies will require transformative financial investments. By unlocking new financing for precision agriculture technology, this bill will allow more farmers to use innovative technology in the pursuit of a strong agricultural economy and even greater climate ambitions.  

“We thank Sens. Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) for championing this important bill.”
