The U.S. Senate Agriculture Subcommittee on Production and Competitiveness is one of four subcommittees of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry.

The Agriculture committee has delegated jurisdiction to this subcommittee over legislation relating to agricultural commodities, including cotton, dairy products, feed grains, wheat, tobacco, peanuts, sugar, wool, rice, oilseeds and soybeans and price and income support programs, and oversight responsibilities over enforcement, implementation and administration of said legislation.

The current ranking Democrat is Kent Conrad (ND), who is expected to take over its chair in 2007 from Mitch McConnell (KY), the outgoing chairperson who was defeated in his bid for reelection in the 2006 mid-term elections.

Members

The following are the members of the committee in order of seniority who will serve until January 2007. (Those members who did not seek re-election or were defeated in the 2006 mid-term elections, are indicated by strike-through.)

(The roster will be updated here as the two parties announce their appointments.)

Pending Legislation

(Research on pending legislation which may before the Subcommittee, and its status, during the "lame duck" November-December 2006 session has not yet been completed.)
