From the Introduction: "Issues concerning racial and ethnic equity in the United States have increased in profile among the general public, policymakers, and Members of Congress. The media has reported on racial inequity across various sectors and industries, including agriculture. Similarly, Congress has drawn attention to the challenges facing Black farmers and ranchers and other producers of color through hearings, legislation, and oversight of federal agencies. [...] This report reviews actions taken by the 116th and 117th Congresses to enhance equity for producers of color in the United States in the areas of agricultural credit; USDA civil rights complaints; farmland ownership; and USDA research, education, and extension."
