The main risk to farmers is not a pandemic, but a drop in oil prices - opinion
The main risks that the new crisis brings for the agrarian sector are the deterioration of the pricing environment, difficult access to financial resources, and problems with logistics.
 
This opinion was expressed by the director of financial and operational activities of AGROTRADE Group Elena Vorona in the material Latifundist.com.
“For the agricultural sector, the main risk is not a pandemic. The main thing is a drop in oil prices, which also drags down the cost of grain. In general, if there was a crisis in the fall, when farmers just harvested, the agricultural sector would have suffered much greater losses, ”said Elena Vorona.
