Spectrum of Policies in Agriculture

Cassidy Deckling, Ohio Northern University

Description

Small-scale and large-scale agriculturalists and policy makers alike constantly struggle with policy decisions, in the United States specifically. This causes there to be an information gap between legislators, farmers, and the general public. This study aims to identify and investigate these issues, while producing solutions for moving forward. Additionally, this study will show the gap between policy effects on small-scale versus large-scale operations. In this presentation, agriculturalist will be truly defined. By using studies, surveys, and other sufficient facts and data, this hypothesis will be tested. Generally, research shows other issues stemming from these information gaps. From public misinformation and lack of communication between policy makers and agriculturalists, more issues arise. This study will present these issues and offer solutions for policy makers, the public, and agriculturalists moving forward. Therefore, allowing the United States to gain the most out of their farming practices and exports.
