July 12, 2020

By: Jim Frankowiak

Florida (Fla.) – The COVID-19 crisis has substantially impacted Florida’s agricultural industry with new challenges on how to protect workers who are essential to keeping our nation’s food supply flowing.

The University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Extension team that works with producers and food processors in Florida is interested in understanding the barriers that the industry is currently facing with COVID-19 and the work force.  The team has created a survey asking those directly involved in food production and processing how they can assist with training needs during the crisis.  The survey has a July 20 deadline for participation.

Industry representatives can take the 10 questions, on-line survey at https://ufl.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1IjYGU4fiiawUzH .  All answers will be kept confidential.
