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.
