The US government’s National Agricultural Library and Agricultural Steel Buildings program has not funded a research project that could help farmers increase their yields, a report said.
The Agricultural Education Service is part of the Agriculture Department, which administers the USDA’s $10.9 billion Agricultural Marketing Service, the USDA said in a statement.
The National Agricultural Education Services is funded by the USDA to support agricultural education and research at rural community colleges and universities.
The library has been supporting a project to investigate agricultural education practices, said the Agriculture department, adding that funding was not directly tied to the library’s program.
The library will be providing materials on agricultural agriculture to the Agriculture and Consumer Protection Office, the department said.
The Agricultural Steel Building program has been funded by a USDA-funded agricultural marketing fellowship program called Agricultural Technology Graduate Fellowship.
The fellowship is not directly related to the Agricultural Education services, Agriculture said.
The program has had funding from the Agricultural Marketing Services since 2015, the Agriculture Dept. said.
