COVID-19 Creating Challenges For Farmers

COVID-19 has created a number of challenges for Manitoba farmers.

Bill Campbell is president of Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP).

"One of the things that has happened is that the doctors are no longer taking appointments and so we have farmers who have Class 1 licenses that need renewal of medical and renewal of the licensing. We also have new applications for Class 1 licensing and those have all been suspended. As we come upon the seeding season, there may be some farmers who do not have a valid Class 1 license."

Campbell also has questions about which, if any, agricultural services/products will be allowed to cross the Canada/U.S. border.
