Natural Gas: Growing, Fertilizing, Feeding
The availability of affordable natural gas – an important feedstock for many key agricultural inputs — has directly benefited the U.S. agriculture sector. Those benefits extend to farms, ranches, and beyond through jobs and tax revenue.

Natural gas helps the U.S. economy produce the agrochemicals like fertilizer which increases crop yields. The U.S. sector would be in a precarious position if it were to lose access to natural gas.
