A March 2007 report from the Congressional Research Service, excerpted, defines agro-terrorism as a subset of bioterrorism in which a disease is deliberately planted in plant or animal food products in order to topple The Great Satan. A second excerpt, from a April 2008 report, looks at issues for Congress about national defense measures against the threat. Finally, the US Environmental Protection Agency discusses animal disease and agro-terrorism in a excerpt from an undated (probably for security reasons) of a Homeland Security Research Document.
