Foreign ag aid provides boost to domestic farmers

The U.S. receives broad-based economic, national security and diplomatic benefits from its agricultural assistance investments in the developing world, according to a new report commissioned by the Board for International Food & Agriculture Development (BIFAD). U.S. agricultural exports to developing countries total $90 billion (of a total of $140 billion) annually and help generate an increase in total U.S. economic activity of $259 billion. By increasing agriculture capacity and production, agricultural aid lifts incomes in the developing world and fuels demand for goods and services abroad.
