The Senate and House conference committee approved the Fiscal Year 2010 Agriculture Appropriations bill. Herb Kohl, chairman of the Senate Ag Appropriations Committee, said some of the money will be used in his home state, Wisconsin.
â€œResearch is the key to progress and this bill provides research opportunities and funding so Wisconsin can continue to be a leader in agriculture,â€ Kohl said.
The bill provides 42.8 billion for USDA research agencies such as the Agricultural Research Service and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
In Wisconsin some projects include $2.5 million for Dairy Forage Research Center in Marshfield and $892,000 for Conservation Technology Transfer at the University of Wisconsin Extension Service.
