Project Summary

In 2016, thirteen regional meetings were held with diverse stakeholders across the state and community members identified several agriculture-related issues. Following these meetings, a background report was published, and an Agricultural Resilience Task Force of industry leaders and experts was assembled to develop solutions. The Resilience in New Mexico Agriculture Strategic Plan was the result of the Task Force’s work. The implementation of this plan is critical to achieve greater agricultural and natural resource resiliency and ensure stability for the next generations of farmers and ranchers.

Legislative Efforts

Ag Resilience – Farmer and Rancher COVID-19 Survey – Spring 2020

This report is based on a survey released in late March of 2020. The core goal of this survey was to gain insight from the agricultural industry about impacts within the first 30 days of the COVID-19 pandemic. This data, while a snapshot in time, will be used to inform policy and systems change needs to build recommendations for relief and recovery efforts to sustain and build agricultural resilience in New Mexico.
