NIFA FY 2017 President’s Budget Proposal
The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) catalyzes transformative discoveries, education, and engagement to address agricultural challenges. NIFA-supported programs turn research into action—bringing groundbreaking discoveries from research laboratories to farms, communities, and classrooms. To ensure science is put into use, NIFA’s integrated approach consists of three components: Research to provide answers to the complex issues facing our nation and world. Education to strengthen schools and universities to train the next generations of scientists, educators, producers, and citizens. Extension to translate the knowledge gained through research and education into innovations that can provide solutions to problems.
