Banner for Sam Taylor

The past year has been a rollercoaster ride for agriculture production due to COVID-19, with trade disruptions occurring as a result of logistics issues, embargoes and tariffs. This session will review the state of global agriculture in 2021 and the need for everyone, including ag retailers, to adapt to remain relevant.


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many countries are re-evaluating food security from a perspective of internal production reliability and like-minded international suppliers. COVID-19 has also impacted agriculture production sectors dramatically while leaving others unscathed. Will the impacted sectors recover in 2021?
