As a Spartan alumni and Director of Business Development at Mercaris I
wanted to make sure you all had access to this:

With such monumental change occurring so rapidly, a tremendous amount of
uncertainty has been injected into U.S. markets, including those for U.S.
organic commodities. *To put this uncertainty in perspective, Mercaris has
conducted an industry-wide research initiative identifying the risks
stemming from COVID-19, focusing on how and when they may impact organic
commodity markets and supply chains in the year to come. *
The Mercaris Special Report: 2020 COVID-19 U.S. Organic Commodity Market &
Risks Outlook
on Wednesday, April 15th.

We also invite you to join us, April 15th at 11:00 AM CST, for a special
webinar addressing the impact of COVID-19 on producers as they look ahead
to spring planting, risks to grain marketing with uncertain demand and
supply chains, changes to the landscape of organic consumer demand, how
macroeconomic shifts could shape organic imports, and the uncertainty
surrounding the 2020 fall harvest.

We hope to see you there.

Stay safe.
