On this maxisode-length edition of Ask One to Grow On, three-quarters of the Casey family (Hallie, Chris and Joanna) discuss how the COVID19 outbreak is impacting agriculture and the food supply chain.
A quick note: Hallie says that the virus can only live for 3-4 hours on inanimate objects. The correct number is up to 3 days, depending on the surface. You can find out more here https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/new-coronavirus-stable-hours-surfaces
