In the space of a dozen articles, the 2018 edition of U.S. Agriculture Outlook covers a lot of ground, examining aspects of U.S. agriculture today and exploring new technologies and trends that point the way in the future. Within the pages of this year’s publication are features on ways to manage farm risk through diversification and insurance, the need for safety awareness and training in the face of the dangers in farm work, and advice on how to choose a veterinarian who can meet your operation’s needs. Forward-looking articles explain how technology is making the food supply chain more transparent and more safe – a win for producers and consumers; provide a roundup of career fields in agriculture with plentiful and well-paying job opportunities; and give producers the basics about how to transition to organic production – and take advantage of the huge demand for organic products. Finally, an interview with Rep. Collin Peterson, ranking member of the House Committee on Agriculture, sheds some light on how the next farm bill is shaping up, and articles on U.S. beef and tree nuts and peanuts shine spotlights on the strong markets for those products.
