Our Mission

The purpose of Agtrade.org is to educate the interested public about current agricultural trade policy issues. We aim to present the results of relevant research on recent issues in a way that is understandable to a general audience.

Financial support for Agtrade.org is generously provided by the Farm Foundation and USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS). Neither the Farm Foundation nor USDA-ERS is responsible for the site’s contents.

This site is maintained by the Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology at Penn State University, in cooperation with the International Agricultural Trade Research Consortium (IATRC).
