A major portion of Florida’s economy is based in agriculture, natural resources and food industries. The COVID-19 pandemic caused significant disruptions to the food system, resulting in sales revenue losses.
Join us on February 17, 2021 at 1 p.m. Eastern as Dr. Christa Court discusses economic impacts of COVID-19 on Florida’s agriculture and marine industries. This webinar will cover how Cooperative Extension faculty used past experience and anecdotal information to design and implement an online survey instrument that could harmonize the data collection process for agriculture and marine operations in the state of Florida and garner a more complete picture of impacts to the food system as a result of the pandemic.
