Farmers, we see your sacrifice. We see your bravery. We see the way this pandemic has stretched you financially and emotionally, and we want to help.
As advocates for the global Ag community, we’ve compiled a list of resources helping farmers in need amid the Coronavirus crisis. We’ve also shared donation links and ways that you can help critically impacted farmers.
Farmers need our support now more than ever. To those who work tirelessly to make sure we’re fed, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and stand arm-and-arm with you through this difficult time. If you have resources to add, email us at Info@DouglasPlantHealth.com.
