   Section  1.  There  is hereby established a 4-H agriculture technology

 also  addressing  the environmental impact of such increase. The depart-

 team shall establish prizes to be awarded to the winning submissions for
 the agriculture technology challenge.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
