Lenexa, Kan., (May 11, 2020) — From on-farm production to keeping food on grocery store shelves, the impacts of COVID-19 have been felt in every segment of America’s agriculture and food supply systems. The short- and long-term effects of the pandemic are the focus of Farm Journal’s next Farm Country Update “From Sprint to Marathon — The Economic, Supply Chain and Political Impacts of COVID-19 on U.S. Agriculture,” which is set for Thursday, May 14, 2020, at 3 p.m. CDT.
