February 21, 2007

Albany -- Agriculture experts say 2007 brings the most uncertain times for their industry in the last 50 years.

Wednesday in Albany, several hundred South Georgia farmers got an update on work on the 2007 Farm Bill from national experts.

 University of Georgia College of Agriculture Dean J. Scott Angle says lawmakers want to ensure American farmers' success so the United States' food supply continues to be grown at home. "I am confident that they are going to find a way to assure that our farmers remain profitable, which is the primary way of keeping people in business."

Angle said pending farm bill legislation should be similar to the current farm bill, because it has succeeded at keeping American food plentiful and cheap.
