Robust federal funding for agricultural research is widely supported by Members of Congress, stakeholders like wheat farmers and the wider agriculture industry that relies on a strong U.S. farm economy.

The National Coalition for Food and Agriculture Research, commonly known as NC-FAR, is a group seeking to demonstrate the importance of federal research investments, with the long-term goal of doubling public investment at the federal level in food and agricultural research, extension and education.
