At the request of the 2007 Legislature, WSDA developed a statewide strategic plan for Washington agriculture. Carried out during 2008, the project sought input on the present conditions and future challenges of agriculture from as many industry segments as possible. Readers are invited to consider the Strategic Plan for Washington Agriculture as a tool for education, a launching point for discussions, and a seed for future actions benefiting the social, environmental, and economic future of Washington. Looking forward to 2020 and beyond, the Future of Farming horizon will help Washington prepare to take opportunities and mitigate challenges starting now. Read the Strategic Plan.
