Addressing Food and Nutrition Security

The USAID-funded John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer Program provides technical assistance to farmers, farm groups, agribusinesses and other agriculture sector institutions in developing and transitional countries to promote sustainable improvements in food security and agricultural processing, production, and marketing. 


  • Started with 1985 Agricultural Development and Trade Act (Farm Bill), proposed by Representative Bereuter of Nebraska
  • Farm Bill provides authorization in 5-year periods
  • Currently in the 2019-2023 cycle


  • To generate rapid, sustained economic growth in the agricultural sector
  • To increase the American public's understanding of international development issues and programs and international understanding of the U.S. and U.S. development programs.
