Protecting Our Nation's Food and Fiber Supply

Approximately 18% of our nation's workforce is employed in production agriculture or in an occupation directly related to the agricultural industry, but everyone consumes food and uses products made from fibers grown in the U.S. So keeping our nation's food and fiber supply safe remains an important priority for all citizens.
