The effect of COVID-19 in agriculture - Ducky16 - 04-21-2020

Please can any one tell me how has the pandemic (coronavirus) affected food systems, food security, and agricultural livelihood?

Although food supply is not affected by lockdown, the police and army at checkpoints are using the opportunity to extort money from food transporters. Another effect is the buying of farm inputs like fertilizers, insecticides, fungicicides, farm implements etc. Farmers can no longer buy these things.
