Following over a decade of declines, the 2014 Agricultural Act yielded modest increases in research and development (R&D) funding. The increase is insufficient to reverse the decline in the U.S. share of global public food and agricultural R&D, and failing to replenish the R&D stock may have profound adverse consequences for the competiveness of U.S. agriculture.
