FAPRI - Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute

The Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) is a unique, dual-university research program, established in 1984 by a grant from the U.S. Congress, to prepare baseline projections for the U.S. agricultural sector and international commodity markets and to develop capability for policy analysis using comprehensive data and computer modeling systems of the world agricultural market.

The Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD) at Iowa State University develops the international side of the models, and the Center for National Food and Agricultural Policy (CNFAP) at the University of Missouri-Columbia develops the U.S. domestic component. Both centers conduct independent as well as joint policy analyses, which are posted at their respective Web sites given below.
