COVID-19 and its unintended consequences have made a major impact on American agriculture, as well as the general U.S. and global economies. The total impact of COVID-19 on the agricultural industry is far from a final assessment. Dr. Dave Kohl, professor emeritus and member of the Academic Hall of Fame, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Virginia Tech, has spent his career spanning five decades dealing with black swans and guiding the agricultural industry in navigating businesses through the economic whitewater.
During this one-hour webinar, Dr. Kohl will provide a vision of how the agricultural industry can rise like a phoenix, the mythical bird for regeneration. He will discuss the implications of COVID-19 on the U.S. and global economies, and the future marketplace including consumer demand shaping the macro view of the decade of the ‘20s.
Dr. Kohl will present specific strategies to producers, agribusiness owners and ag lenders. The good doctor will provide time-tested strategies of resilience and agility to reenergize business decision making.
