The article focuses on government spending on agricultural programs in the U.S. The government has planned to shift its spending from the agriculture sector to conservation incentives, wetlands, etc. A lot of the U.S. dollars have already spent on one-time, big ticket conservation projects. Pesticide technology can play an important role in the preservation of habitat for wildlife.
