COVID-19 has disrupted Missouri’s agricultural industry through lower, unstable commodity prices, strain on the food supply chain and changes in consumer purchasing habits.
The U.S. Small Business Administration provided additional funding to the Missouri Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) to increase business support capacity. Designated in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the funding allows Missouri SBDC, a program of University of Missouri Extension, to expand services and partnerships to mitigate risks stemming from COVID-19.
Missouri SBDC and MU Extension A&E work will focus on assisting businesses with moving forward from the recent disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic. From financial management education to business model pivots and value proposition identification, faculty across the state will provide assistance and access to resources to strengthen Missouri’s agricultural businesses.
