The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is accepting public comments through 31 May 2009 on the development of a strategic research, education, and extension plan. The plan will identify current trends, constraints, and major opportunities and gaps that no single entity within the USDA would be able to address individually. Public comment is sought on identifying critical issues in agriculture that crosscut USDA programs, criteria to prioritize agriculture science investments, and improvements to USDA partnerships and coordination.
