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.
