Trade and Agricultural Policy

CARD's TAP division examines the impacts of domestic and international trade policies for commodity prices, production and consumption, trade, international market performance, and government and societal costs.

The Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) is operated by CARD's TAP division and the Center for National Food and Agricultural Policy at the University of Missouri at Columbia. FAPRI develops the most widely circulated and publicly available annual long-term outlook for major commodity markets. FAPRI researchers also provide policymakers with analyses of alternative agricultural and trade policies.
