Minnesota's ag sector is coming together to overcome a challenge we haven't faced in our lifetime, but the selfless, considerate response we have seen from our peers in agriculture has made us confident we will come out of this situation stronger than before. The Minnesota Corn Growers Association would like to hear what concerns corn farmers have related to this crisis, so it can better work to address them.
For example, do you have supply chain issues due to work stoppages? Are you worried how the grain market will respond to coronavirus mitigation strategies? Please fill out the below form and let us know. While you can fill out the form anonymously, your contact information is helpful in case of follow-up questions.
We would also like to remind farmers of the below resources available to them today:

- MinnesotaFarmStress.com has additional resources to help with on-farm stress
