Event Description

As stay at home orders remain in place and business are shuttered or functioning at highly reduced capacities, you may be curious what effect this is having on the ability of agricultural operations to continue to supply food at a normal rate. Are farmers still able to plant their crop with diminished work capacity? How will producers cope with social distancing restrictions in plants where it is simply not feasible? Join us to hear from representatives in the agriculture industry as we discuss the current effects the pandemic is having on operations, and potential future effects. As time goes on and the situation with the pandemic evolves, so too will the content of this panel, so you won’t want to miss out on this timely discussion.
