National Agriculture Day, 2022

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                On National Agriculture Day, we recognize the 
                invaluable contributions of American farmers, 
                farmworkers, ranchers, fishers, foresters, and other 
                agricultural workers, who have practiced their craft 
                for generations and touch the lives of Americans every 
                day. Their tireless efforts growing crops, raising 
                livestock, and distributing food, fuel, and fiber 
                sustain America and the entire world. They put meals on 
                our plates, clothes on our backs, and roofs over our 
                heads. Along the way, America's agricultural workers 
                serve as stewards of the land; ensure the safety and 
                health of animals, plants, and people; and strengthen 
                our rural communities with economic opportunities.

                Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the country's 
                agricultural workers have stepped up and stayed 
                resilient, adapting their operations to ensure that 
                every family has enough food on the table. To support 
                their efforts and ensure a stable food supply, our 
                pandemic economic recovery assistance supports our 
                agricultural businesses, whose operations were among 
                the hardest hit by market disruptions. We are building 
                a food system that will be more competitive, balanced, 
                and equitable--made possible by expanded and fairer 
                markets, investments that sharpen farmers' competitive 
                edge, and an emphasis on more affordable, healthy food 
                for consumers that is produced closer to home.

                My Administration is also committed to protecting 
                farmers--including small family farms that are vital to 
                our food system--by bolstering competition across the 
                industry and around the world. We are taking action to 
                enforce antitrust laws, move agriculture products to 
                market more expeditiously, expand new agriculture 
                processing capacity, and strengthen our supply chain 
                resiliency. We are also eliminating systemic barriers 
                that have denied underserved producers consistent, 
                fair, and equal access to opportunities for far too 
                long. My Administration remains determined to advance 
                an American agriculture sector that works for everyone.

                National Agriculture Day also celebrates the farmers, 
                ranchers, fishers, and foresters who adopt agricultural 
                practices that help combat the climate crisis. Extreme 
                weather events, including droughts, floods, wildfires, 
                tornadoes, hurricanes, and other climate-related 
                disasters, have had a devastating impact on American 
                agriculture. My Administration is committed to helping 
                the agriculture sector enhance its resiliency and 
                sustainability while increasing its productivity and 
                profitability. By working together, we can ensure that 
                American agriculture continues to lead the world in 
                production, that our food supply is secure, and that 
                our economy remains strong.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of 
                the United States of America, by virtue of the 
                authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws 
                of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 22, 
                2022, as National Agriculture Day. I call upon all 
                Americans to join me in recognizing and reaffirming our 
                commitment to and appreciation for our country's 
                farmers, ranchers, foresters, farmworkers, and all 
                those who work in the agriculture sector across the 
                Nation.
