Jon and Mike examine the status of farm inputs availability amid the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak.
In response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak, the institution of social distancing protocols has left growers and ag stakeholders with questions as they head into planting season.
So we're interrupting your normal programming to provide a timely update with the CEO of Nutrien Ag Solutions, Mike Frank.
In this episode, Mike tells NCGA CEO Jon Doggett that Nutrien is on-track to deliver all the inputs growers need to get a jump on the season and enacting special protocols to keep staff and farmers safe.
Ultimately, the fate of the nation hangs on its uninterrupted food supply, and Jon has details on NCGA's efforts to ensure the supply lines remain open and farmers have the support they need.
