This week the Georgia Department of Agriculture will announce the release of a second “Impact of COVID-19 on Agriculture Survey”. The Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development faculty have modified and updated the first survey that was released in May 2020. Their hope is that farmers can now place some economic impact perspective for the whole 2020 year. It will also be informative to gauge their participation in USDA programs that were released after the May survey. The deadline for completion is before Christmas. With your assistance, participation in the first survey exceeded 850. I hope that you can again promote the survey in your agricultural community. Good participation makes for a stronger and more accurate case as these numbers are shared with associations, agency heads and policy makers. The plan is for the results to be shared at 2021 Ag Forecast virtual meeting scheduled for January 29th.
Please take time to fill out the survey below:
