There’s been plenty of supply chain cause and effect because of COVID-19 in recent weeks. We’ve seen dairies dump their product for lack of demand, tomato farmers in Florida do the same, and meat processing plants across the country are scrambling because the virus has spread among their employees.

The stories are heartbreaking. Producers take great pride in their work, and it is a shame that demand and supply chain issues are impacting America’s farmers.

One supply chain issue Kansans might pay closer attention to is the low demand for ethanol and thus the low price of corn.
