We pay less for food than citizens of other nations; the United States enjoys the cheapest food in the world.

But as you walk through the grocery store, do you ever wonder where such an abundance and variety of food and products came from?

Each year, dozens of improved products and new varieties of fruits, nuts, and vegetables emerge from the laboratories and greenhouses of the Agricultural Research Service.

Next time you find yourself behind a shopping cart, take a look. You'll find that there's plenty of scientific know-how on your supermarket shelves!
