One farmer sees the Inflation Reduction Act as good news for the 2023 Farm Bill

A farmer in Illinois sees the newly signed Inflation Reduction Act as good news for the 2023 Farm Bill.

Randy Desutter tells Brownfield Ag News, the IRA includes billions of dollars for conservation programs, which he says, could take some pressure off of Farm Bill funding. He says since there is so much money involved in the Inflation Reduction Act for conservation, there will be more money in the Farm Bill to further address issues like high input costs.
