    Abstract

    The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) was founded in 1862. Since then, the USDA has touched and improved the lives of generations of Americans through research in food production, nutrition, agricultural systems, natural resource conservation, economics, and marketing. Research funded by the USDA through its Agricultural Research Service and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture has resulted in a variety of abundant, safe, and nutritious foods for the growing population and has provided economic opportunities in rural and urban communities. Ongoing efforts by the USDA continue to address critical needs across the United States. Historical posters serve to illustrate the effect of the USDA on food production, quality, and safety.
