How would you improve the farm bill?

With the Senate's agriculture committee taking on the 2012 farm bill, now is a good time to take a look at the key issues facing agriculture.

The farm bill will have far-reaching impact from the field, to the school cafeteria, to the grocery aisle. With that in mind, the New York Times is featuring farm bill concerns from a wide range of experts and thinkers in its Opinion pages.

Walter Olson, of the conservative-leaning Cato Institute, wants a simpler bill. David Murphy of the environmental advocacy group Food Democracy Now! hopes the bill will advocate for organic farming practices. Jim Weill of the Food Resource and Action Center advocates for a new commitment to food stamps.

There's plenty of room for the Times to add to the voices it's featuring on farm bill policy. What areas are they missing? Who haven't they heard from?
