Abstract

This textbook chapter comes in Part III off the groundbreaking Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Law, in which leading environmental legal scholars Mary Jane Angelo, Jason Czarnezki, and Bill Eubanks, along with five distinguished contributing authors, undertake an exploration of the challenging political and societal issues facing agricultural policy and modern food systems through the lens of environmental protection laws. It is the first book to examine both the impact of agricultural policy on the environment and the influence of environmental law on food and agriculture.

This chapter assesses the impact of the National Environmental Policy Act on federal decisions in connection with agricultural or other food system activities, including Farm Bill legislation, genetically engineered crops, aquaculture, and conversion of wetlands to farmland.
