USDA Invests in Domestic Fertilizer Projects

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is making strides to empower American agriculture by investing in domestic fertilizer projects. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack recently unveiled the USDA’s plan to allocate $83 million across 12 states through the Fertilizer Production and Expansion Program.

These funds aim to assist independent business owners in upgrading equipment, embracing new technologies, and establishing production facilities. The ultimate goal is to strengthen domestic fertilizer production and enhance the resilience of the agricultural supply chain.

Vilsack underscored the significance of these investments in boosting domestic fertilizer output, reducing reliance on imports, and safeguarding the agricultural sector’s stability.
