WASHINGTON, D.C., September 19, 2022 – Today, Monday, September 19, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will travel to Denver, Colorado. There, he will announce projects in Colorado that will expand market opportunities for producers and improve soil carbon sequestration, including a project led by the Colorado Department of Agriculture that will provide technical assistance to a diverse range of producers to create products grown with healthy soil practices. This visit is part of a historic investment of $2.8 billion by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to expand markets for climate-smart commodities, leverage the greenhouse gas benefits of climate-smart commodity production and provide direct, meaningful benefits to production agriculture in Colorado and across the country, including for small and underserved producers. This investment will increase the competitive advantage of U.S. agriculture both domestically and internationally, combat the climate crisis, and strengthen rural America
